Champions - Made Possible by Cray

SESSION: Effective Application of HPC

EVENT TYPE: Exhibits, Exhibitor Forums

EVENT TAG(S): Effective Application of HPC

TIME: 11:00AM - 11:30AM


Presenter(s):Tim White



Competition is part of human nature. Sport marries our competitive instinct with another key human pursuit — entertainment. As a global market, sport generates $600+ billion annually with an estimated additional $700 billion coming from derivative markets such as fantasy sports, gambling, and enhanced media experiences. Pointing to the cultural importance of sport, the movie Moneyball highlights an ongoing transformation in decision making in Major League Baseball from one of tacit knowledge to actuarial modeling. In this presentation we will look at sports analytics, discuss how HPC is furthering this transformation, and highlight complex problems such as discovering competitive advantages, injury risk, player selection, and the March Madness bracket. The analytics developed for sport have wide application outside of sport as well. Overall, the development of complex analytics in sport is a cultural validation point for the importance of HPC.
