Sports franchises have built an entire industry on accurate player scouting and analysis so they can find the best players to help them win. However, many of the practices in sports scouting are archaic in nature. Using artificial intelligence is a much more efficient way to predict the future success of a prospect. Because of AI’s ability to consider multiple facets of data and how they correlate, it can provide a more complete perspective on the future capabilities of any prospect.
