Previewing STATS Interactive Sports Analytics Panel at SXSW

By: Andy Cooper

STATS, the global leader in sports intelligence and the pioneer of live sports data, will participate in the SXSW panel titled Interactive Sports Analytics: Empowering Domain Experts in Austin on Saturday, March 11 at 12:30 pm.

Director of Data Science Dr. Patrick Lucey will represent STATS in the panel discussion about the current state and future of sports analytics and data. Patrick will be joined on the panel by Kirk Goldsberry, VP of Strategic Research for the San Antonio Spurs, and Nick Ross, CIO of Genius Sports Group.

Together the panelists will discuss the concept of “interactive sports analytics” and how this can be used across different domains. In the era of big data, there is so much data to process the key to unlocking the value in sports data isn’t developing new metrics, but developing new technology which will enable users and consumers to interact directly with the data. This shift will empower them to find their own patterns and stories, which allows them consume the game in whatever form they see fit.

This is the second year in a row that STATS participated in a SXSW panel. Last year STATS Chief Technology Officer Darryl Lewis presented alongside Joe Procopio, Chief Product Officer at Automated Insights, on the Automated Future of Sports Analysis.
