Research is being done regularly to improve our world. Whether on a quest to bring us a better vaccine and make us immune to various diseases, or to find new ways of exploring space, scientists are always trying to make the world a better place. AI research plays a big role in that. AIs have started helping through some amazing calculations and predictions, making data analysis and crunching easier for everyone. This has been a step in the right direction for everyone, including sports fans.
AIs have been helping develop and enhance many things, including the experience of a sports fan.
Better Engagement Through AI
Watching sports on the TV, or now, streams, has been a great way of spending time with friends and family. Some do it because it is their passion and not just a hobby. Cheering for your favorite team is something you feel like the right thing to do. Well, with that in mind, AIs help you with the information on what is going on in a specific match or race. Data can be displayed which was otherwise unavailable, or it took a lot of time for it to be ready. That means that you can see Formula 1 drivers and their decisions mid race, or that you can see how a match is developing from an AI perspective, giving you insight into how dominant a team/player is.
Fantasy Sports – AI Boosted
There is no question that AIs will provide everyone with better data and analysis when it comes to building your own fantasy roster. Data crunching, analysing tons of structured lines of code, that is what AIs do best, so you should expect your experience as a fantasy player to be better. The future is with the youth and the youth is already masterful at using the internet.
The Viewing Experience Gets Better
There is nothing like getting a better viewing experience. We already have Video Assisted Referees in major sports. Some sports like tennis have highlights which are created mere seconds after a play has been made, showing impeccable recreations of a play, players and even crowd. With such technology, other sports will finally start benefiting. Tennis is a good start because there are only two or four players involved. Sports like rugby would take some time, but we do have time, and the technology to do it.
Data Helps the Coaches – Not Just Fans
Imagine what a coach can do with the data they might get for their team and the opposition, as well. Fans benefit from AIs doing their thing, displaying more stats and showing various replays. But the way fans can benefit more is if coaches start using AI data to make their teams and players better, thus snagging more victories and making their fans happier. A winning team’s fan is always happy. But, everyone will have access to such stats, so it all comes down to who does a better job of using them and whether teams can mesh well or players in individual sports find their groove.
A Personal Experience
With how everything is catered towards the individual, like your own recommendations on YouTube, AI powered, you can also expect sports to become similar. Your viewing experience will be your own, showing you the stats and highlights you want. This is a bit far off, but it will be there, at some point.
AIs do a great job of helping us improve our world. From science and healthcare research to fans getting a better viewing experience and enjoying sports more. The future is here, but it is still to be achieved.
