According to Tracy Axel, director of high-performance analytics at USA Surfing, the development of an AI solution for the team involves the recognition of key elements that athletes face when facing a wave. “Surfing has very high risk movements and our job is ultimately to protect the health and well-being of the athlete”

Study of movement in action

In order to better understand how the body of the athletes acts in the sea, a land-based image recording system was used in which the movements of each surfer were captured and AI was used to determine their strengths and weaknesses.

However, the Microsoft and USA Surfing team did not limit themselves to a single field, but rather analyzed three aspects that influence the surfers performance: The body, by its movements; the equipment, due to the characteristics of the table; and the environment, due to the characteristics of the waves with which they face.

the technology of Azure Cognitive Services, AI that is used for the benefit of surfers, provides data that is used to improve training sessions, coaching and scoring thanks to an analysis of variables such as the speed at which movements are made. In addition, situations that cause injuries can be identified to manage their prevention.

For Kevin Schulzprofessional surfer from the United States, the Artificial Intelligence of microsoft It will allow the athletes of the future to develop a set of skills at a much faster rate, which will benefit their performance and their teams.

Technology developed by Microsoft provides data quickly to sports specialists, who have the ability to better understand the movements of athletes in the water. This tool is capable of display information that is not visible in surf videos: the mechanical movements and body patterns that are made at every moment.
