How do you use AI to find the world's next soccer star?

SciSports tracks on-field movements using machine learning algorithms that learn with experience. Values are assigned to each position and change over time based on their success rate. A goal, for example, has a high value, but a contributing action can become more valuable as the platform masters the game. AI makes it possible to discover new connections and spot rising stars.
