The A.I. for winning an unfair game

Have you seen the movie Moneyball? In the ten years since it was released, Big Data and Data Analytics has exploded. In this project, you'll work with real life data from OHL (a Belgian pro league football club), and IBM's expertise and technology to dive into sports analytics.

 

Goal of the project:

Your team will develop and pitch an AI solution. Who knows - maybe you'll impact the future of premier league football as we know it.

Programme

From 17 April until 21 April 2023

We welcome participants of the BusIT Week 2023 on Sunday April 16th 2023. We expect them to meet with local students and coaches at the accomodation they're staying for the week. Participants will will be staying close to the train station of Leuven (couple minutes on foot). With the adress, which will communicated as soon as possible,  students should be able to find it easily.
