Applying Deep Learning to Understand Player Movement Patterns and Sports Specific Movement Classifications
The Carnegie Adolescent Rugby Research (CARR) is pleased to offer the following PhD Studentship project to progress the field of athlete workload and performance monitoring, the recruited PhD students will analyse frequently collect micro technology data, to provide new insights. Within sport, data are frequently measured and evaluated from velocity-derived metrics from GPS technology. In addition to GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers are also embedded within micro technology devices. These allow specific movements, sequence of movements and player movement patterns to be classified, which are rarely explored. By working closely with international coaches within the EPU, the impact of manipulating game constraints will be evaluated which will support talent identification, talent development, athlete physical preparation and injury prevention practices across a range of sports. The candidate will have experience working with sports technology, advanced data science and statistical analyses techniques.
