Catapult Sports on AI that is changing the game
Play • 42 min

Sports and artificial intelligence aren’t two areas that often intersect. That has begun to change as IoT and wearables have begun to be adopted by more professional sports teams. The data that’s produced can be used to identify areas of performance improvement, potential future injuries and insights about team structure on the field.

Today’s guest, Param Hegde, former CTO of Catapult Sports joined the show to share how the company is using data-driven intelligence to help athletes reach the top of their game. Please note: this interview was taped in late 2021. Since then, Param Hegde has moved on from Catapult to another endeavor.

Originally founded in Australia, Catapult Sports has been a leader in the sports analytics sector for some time. This year, the winner of the 2022 Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams, even wore Catapult Sports tech demonstrating just how far the company has come. Param and Pieter discuss the technicalities of building such software and other areas of sports that AI may be applied.
