Sports Analytics is a growing field in computer vision that analyzes visual cues from images to provide statistical data on players, teams, and games. Want to know how a player's technique improves the quality of the team? Can a team, based on their defensive position, increase their chances to the finals? These are a few out of a plethora of questions that are answered in sports analytics.
