Lezing Data Science and Sports

Leiden University is starting a university-wide Research Program on Data Science and one of the routes in the Dutch National Research Agenda is "Sports and Movement". As we have witnessed in the Rio Olympic Games, athletes always strive for the top. How can data scientists assist them in improving their performance? We will present two examples of successful projects: one on optimizing sports performance and one on selecting sports talent.
