[VIDEO] The Math Behind Basketball

This is an interesting talk by Rajiv Maheswaran, Professor at the University of Southern California’s Computer Science Department.

He talks about capturing the massive amount of data that happens during a basketball game and using machine learning to understand complex events like “post ups” and “pick and rolls”. The machine can now see the game with the eyes of a coach.

Mind blown.
