Each Friday, we will share some of the best Data Science and AI Ted Talks and this week we take a look at Rajiv Maheswaran’s “The Math Behind Basketball’s Wildest moves.”
Basketball is a fast-moving game of improvisation, contact and, ahem, spatiotemporal pattern recognition. Maheswaran and his colleagues are analyzing the movements behind the key plays of the game, to help coaches and players combine intuition with new data.
Bonus: What they’re learning could help us understand how humans move everywhere.
