Data in Professional Sport

About

Minderoo Foundation’s Frontier Tech initiative and the Minderoo Tech & Policy Lab have supported the establishment of an Expert Working Group on Data in Professional Sport, to be led by the Australian Academy of Science and domain experts in sport science, law, ethics, health and data governance.

The overall goal of this project is to develop a Discussion Paper that explores and maps the rapid and unchecked acceleration of data capture, aggregation and analytics in Australian professional sport.
