CHICAGO– April 12, 2019STATS, the revolutionary leader in sports AI, announced that Nathan Frank, an AI scientist at STATS leveraging sports data to develop new technologies for sports analysis, will speak at the Basketball Analytics Summit 2019 at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina on Saturday, April 13. Frank’s discussions will take place at 12:15 p.m. EST, with a more in-depth breakout session at 3 p.m.

His talk will go into detail on how STATS has applied methods from natural-language processing for NBA win probability and computer vision for products like AutoSTATS.

“Teams are collecting more data than ever and, with that, are beginning to invest in emerging technology to gain a competitive edge,” said Frank. “We’re developing solutions for sports using leading AI and machine learning techniques that can have a major influence on the future use of analytics in basketball. These innovative solutions improve the way teams interpret data to tell more stories, give better predictions and enhance the game as we know it.”
