Sports Analytics and the Future of Wearables

Tue, Jan 12 2016, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm PST              Sports Analytics and the Future of Wearables 1

In recent years, much has been hyped about sports science and wearable technology.  As most health and fitness wearable offerings still provide only basic data about a user’s steps, weight and calories, these products lack critical predictive or prescriptive feedback.

In this talk, CK Lam will describe how the sports wearable future will allow optimal performance with minimal pain and injury by way of finely-tuned data mining, data aggregation and machine learning in a non-intrusive form factor which consumes less power and integrates into the user’s daily lifestyle.  CK will demonstrate how all of these capabilities are included in Palo Alto Scientific’s profileMyRun Smart Running System.

Background on the technology is available in this video.
