Dr. David Radke (SR RESEARCH SCIENTIST WITH CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS)
Check out the slides from the seminar:
Multiagent systems is a sub-field of artificial intelligence (AI) concerned with how multiple agents interact in an environment. In the first part of this talk, Dr. David Radke presented methods to characterize the available passing space between any two players using NHL puck and player tracking data. In the second part of this talk, Dr. David Radke discussed some of the ways researchers anticipate multiagent systems will be used to revolutionize team sports analytics in sports classified as “invasion games” (i.e., ice hockey, basketball, and soccer). Success in invasion game sports requires high degrees of inter-player coordination and cooperation. Dr. David Radke made connections between areas of research in multiagent systems and existing problems in team sports analytics, and in turn, show how sports will help drive multiagent systems research forward.
