Whether we’re professional athletes, weekend warriors, coaches or cheering in the crowd, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to affect our relationship with sport. How will we train when we know our body’s every biological detail? How will we coach when we can anticipate six moves in advance? Can we create AI tools that keep us skilled, fit and happy? This panel explores marrying the risk, adrenaline and emotional and physical exertion of sport with data-driven machine learning.
