Artificial Basketball Coach

The advent of miniature and low-cost wearable sensors has allowed us to collect body motion patterns and biosignals during sports training. These signals are processed and converted to usable information about the state of the sports training. Using machine learning algorithms this information can be blended together with the knowledge about the training of specific sports discipline. Therefore, making use of wearable technology and machine learning can lead to the creation of artificial sports coaches. This is the story of how we did it for basketball.
