Business Post : AI match-analysis could be a game-changer
Lovely to see RugbySmarts feature in today’s Business Post as we continue our journey and seek investment to help accelerate our product roadmap and bring our automated video analytics product to the next level.
In the article, RugbySmarts CEO Yvonne Comer explains the origins of the video analytics product.
“In the process of video analysis, someone has to sit there and watch what’s happening, and say ‘there’s a scrum, there’s a lineout, there’s a ruck, there’s a maul’,” Comer said.
“They spend hours and hours just literally naming what’s happening in a match or session, before they can get to any in-depth analysis of it. And that’s the same across every sport – it’s a manual data entry process first before you can get to any of the performance parts at all, and it takes so long. We can take that away.”
Through Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, computer vision and an in-depth knowledge of the sport of rugby, we have developed an innovative software platform that takes the lengthy, manual and repetitive process of tagging and categorising video footage before any analysis can even take place. For rugby union coaches and game analysts, this is game-changing software.
