From performance and assessment analytics solutions to communication platforms, Georgia Tech athletic departments and sports teams are constantly gathering data, searching for efficiency solutions and identifying ways to implement those solutions. This ongoing process is designed to ensure that athletes are equipped for competition in the classroom and on the field. Many teams are also currently using wearables to track performance data without a means to analyze or interpret the data.

At Thursday’s IPaT Think Tank we’ll discuss the role of data in sports, including efforts by the Georgia Tech Athletic Association (GTAA) to build a sports database and a new sports analytics platform. Join IPaT, GTAA, our partners and collaborators for a lively discussion on the future of technology in sports. Networking begins at 3:30 pm and the discussion starts at 4 pm.
