Intel's 3D and AI tech now helps train athletes

#artificialintelligence

Intel today revealed that its 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT) technology is being employed by Exos, a firm that focuses on human performance conditioning, to help train professional athletes aspiring to join the National Football League (NFL) and other organizations. Intel's 3DAT technology captures skeletal data when an athlete is sprinting, using a video camera running at 60 frames per second. That data is then analyzed using Intel Deep Learning Boost AI capabilities that have been built into the latest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors Intel has deployed in a cloud it manages. The goal is to make it simpler for coaches and athletes to understand how different types of skeletal structures may give one athlete an edge over another, said Ashton Eaton, two-time Olympic gold medalist in the decathlon and a product development engineer in Intel's Olympic Technology Group. "We don't know why people won or lost," Eaton said. "There are a lot of unknowns."

What's New: EXOS, a leader in the field of advancing human performance, is piloting Intel's 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT) technology in training aspiring professional athletes to reach their peak performance. As pro days loom, these athletes seek to take their game to the next level with 3DAT by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to gain actionable insights about their velocity, acceleration and biomechanics when sprinting. This press release features multimedia. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton works as a product development engineer in Intel's Olympic Technology Group. "There's a massive gap in the sports and movement field, between what people feel when they move and what they actually know that they're doing," says Eaton, who won gold medals in the decathlon.


Intel will use multi-camera, 3D athlete tracking in the 2020 Olympics

Intel plans to bring 3D athlete tracking (3DAT) to the 2020 Olympics. Today, the company announced that its 3DAT system will use four cameras to film athletes in the 100-meter and other sprinting events. Algorithms will then analyze the biomechanics of the athletes' movements and broadcast those as visual overlays available during replays. Intel has already made big promises for the 2020 Olympics. It previously announced that it's working on a 5G network for the games, and there's a good chance we'll see another drone-based light show.

"Metrics that were previously unmeasurable by the naked eye are now being revealed with Intel's 3DAT technology. We're able to take that information, synthesize it and turn it into something tangible for our coaches and athletes. It's a gamechanger when the tiniest of adjustments can lead to real, impactful results for our athletes."


Intel And Alibaba Bring AI-Powered 3-D Athlete-Tracking Technology To Tokyo Olympics

#artificialintelligence

At CES 2019, Intel and Alibaba announced the new collaboration to develop AI-powered 3D athlete tracking technology that is aimed to be deployed at the Olympic Games 2020. The technology is based on current and upcoming Intel hardware optimized for Alibaba's cloud computing platform. Multiple standard video cameras are used to create a 3D mesh that enables coaches and trainers to retrieve complex real-time biomechanical data. The 3D mesh is used for analyzing performance and introduce new training enhancements by the coaches. According to Intel, the technology leverages advanced pose modeling techniques and other AI algorithms designed to analyze the biomechanics of an athlete's movements.
