Internet of sports – combining sports and computer science to cool services
The talk will be divided in two parts: the area of internet of sports and the business opportunities and an example of a service, MySkiLab, for movement analysis of cross country skiing in the field. The service has been developed in close collaboration with the Swedish ski-team and leading researchers in integrative physiology and bio mechanics. The competences needed to realize the services are machine learning, statistics, user experience, big data analytics, client and server programming. The application has now been released in a beta version.
