Shocking, I know! After all of the Super Bowl ads that it would not be a Media Monday. But I read something pretty fascinating about the game, metrics and machine learning.
“The NFL is unveiling a new measure of quarterbacks’ performances within a given game. Called the Passing Score, the metric uses Amazon Web Services’ A.I. to assess a quarterback’s execution on each play. At the end of the game, the player is graded on a scale of 50 to 99. Priya Ponnapalli, senior manager and principal scientist at the Amazon Machine Learning Solutions Lab, says the tool can have implications beyond the sports world.”
And the fact that there are other possibilities for this idea that expands to everyday work life. Heady stuff….
