MIT Sloan holds a very interesting sport analytics conference each year. The 2013 conference was held a couple of months back and I have started to dig into the extensive range of video conferences available on their website. Here is a very interesting panel discussion about football (soccer) analytics, featuring Chris Anderson, the great football (or soccer) analytics blogger and author of the new book The Numbers Game, which I will dig into soon.
The 2012 conference is also available on the web. The soccer analytics panel discussion – with former star defender Alexi Lalas and others – is available here. The ice hockey analytics discussion – with dinosaur Brian Burke, Boston Bruins’ general manager Peter Chiarelli and others – is available here.
