How Sports is driving EmergingTechnologies in the Digital Age
The following article was prepared to demonstrate how Sports is a catalysis for rapid technological implementation. It is important for industry leaders across all economic verticals to understand how athletics shapes the ability for science and technology to integrate into our society.
The 20th Century has taught us that the security defense innovation of Nations is the financial backbone of technological innovations and breakthroughs. However many people often forget that the image of this development is primarily displayed through the more friendly realm of Sports. Therefore the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, and other Global sporting events often receive much attention and scrutiny among nations to demonstrate their strength and ability. Ancient civilizations are no exception to this them of national strength and sports being embedded into the ability of humans.
The laws of nature + the laws of science + the laws of humanity are brought into “ethical focus” when the principles of fair competition are seen through the lens of sports and athletics. The Legal and ethical approach to emerging technologies is extremely consequential when first tested in life threaten industries such as pharmaceutical or agriculture, Therefore Sports is a platform to allow frontier testing without the devastating impacts. In addition, when industry leaders analyze the technologies capacity through the small-scale application of sports is easy to create countless use-cases that have already been proven through ethical guidance.
It is a common trend to see some of the latest technologies being used in Professional Sports as a testing ground for innovative development. For example, AlphaGo of Chinese Chess (which can be considered a game/sport) is the General AI or computational achievement which has been a game-changer in manufacturing and cloud-computing. However, AI Humanoids or AI-Coaches that can master team Sports must conquer the next Technological Advancement of Human Movement and reasoning. For this reason, every Top Technology institutions in the World have well funded Sports Innovation & Marketing Departments including SAP, Microsoft, Amazon, MIT, Alibaba, and more.
In addition, Sports is a not only a gateway to innovation and technological potential but a promising go-to-market platform. Sport is built around the aspect of fans who can enjoy the top talent or the stories of overcoming difficulties to triumph. This dynamic platform of sports is a magnificent method to give technologies and their implementation impact a global stage to be understood and accepted by populations. Also, e-sports which digitalizes competition and games has become one of the largest events on the planet
Let us analyze this deeper through context of why high-level Sports drives the rapid application of technology into society that is not based on the ability to destroy others but the ability to enhance human ability and productivity in the scope of 21st Century technologies driving the digital age.
Stakeholders from across industry, academia and competitive sport must explore how cutting-edge advances and innovations in data, modeling, simulation, and design engineering are enabling humans and machines to operate ever closer to peak functional and mechanical capacity.
The composition of the human body is the manufacturing plant of sports big data. The human body which is understood through biosciences, and elevated through bio technology, is in fact, for discipline when trying to enhance sporting performance. Whether it be mental concentration, blood flow circulation, heart rate, skin, absorption, body fluid or muscle mass. There are an infinite number of bio metric data points that sports medicine and sports technology must take into consideration. Modern day techniques include wearable’s packed with high precision sensors that can support the calculation of real-time data during sporting performance, games, training, sleep and post-activity.
New forms of nano-based sensors are also emerging, including those which can be ingested and those which can be highly precise in various calculations, and produce a significant amount of data to not only help sporting athletes, perform at higher levels but allow medical research to continue frontier advantages.
The rapid combination between big data and high precision sensors, create a sporting environment, whereby, real time Internet of everything applications come alive. In fact, the challenges of sensors and big data within high performance team sporting activities require people to people interaction, as well as individual sporting competitions, which require long-term development, planning in training, all work together to create an extraordinary environment for the development of the Internet of things.
When we consider the research and development done with high-level athletes, we can automatically gain deeper insights to support health-technology applications and meaningful bio-technology solutions that will enhance the effectiveness of medicines, the ability for big data and sensors to identify the rapid capability of innovation to support diagnoses, as well as treatment, recovery and rehabilitation at the highest levels of world class precision.
Intelligent manufacturing was one of the first industries to take advantage of the great capacity of artificial intelligence plus machines this is because the actual task of the intelligent machines were limited to very specific and robotic assignments that allowed for heavy machines to be programmed to do one task without the need for creativity, reaction, or external factors, which require new responses.
When considering team sports, such as football or basketball, one must understand that, although there are patterns which arise in these classical team sports, there are also necessary elements of creativity, design, thinking in real time and cooperation between different types of people, players, and even elements from the natural environment.
All of these factors create an environment, where by a human, must combine their computing power within their brain together with the ability of their physical body in a manner that cannot only be programmed through infinite number of options, but make the best decision in real time based on different situations.
It is the essence of team sports, which will ultimately redefine the next generation of artificial intelligence and machine learning, when considering the psycologicla capacity of intelligent robots to operate as humans. Every industry can learn from the high precision and high performance of high-level athletes, utilizing and transforming the hybrid capacity of AI and machines. The best example is the Paralympics, where athletes who are without legs or arms are given machine limbs which eventually outperform those who are fully human. It is this hybrid integration that also allows us to leapfrog our vision and ideas where artificial intelligence and intelligent machines can take us.
Law and regulation should concentrate its initial science and research within the field of sport technology, whereas to identify future conflicts of interest, and quickly understand the capacity for sports to redefine how culture accepts implementation and ultimately designs applications for the next generation of the digital age.
The professional sports industry is also known as a segment of entertainment, whereby the continent is created through the high performance of human talent. This means that the attention is drawn to the ability for teams and individuals to compete at the highest level consistently on a global scale.
Sporting culture in team dynamic, obviously play an economic roll when defining business metrics and organizing executive teams in response to our understanding of economic competition and innovation, however sport technology doesn’t stop with exporting culture, but extends well into the art of fan economic online systems, and even new financial portals, such as Blockchain.
Subscription models and other various forms of business segments have emerged whereby reward systems for climate credits, or competing with friends on ethical -friendly competitions such as health challenges help to create brand loyalty in a world where old industries are being re-innovated with new brands.
Online gaming, an online e-commerce reward, portals and consumer loyalty will be extended to another level when combining the understanding between sport culture, regional culture, national culture, and even global sporting culture to sale products and services, as well as highlight, emerging technologies making a real difference.
Behind this transition will be the important aspect of LegalTech + FinTech. Athletes must prepare in the most difficult conditions in order to be ready for the game. A triathlon runner must train for months in order to be prepared for the difficult roads ahead. This is the same environment at which we must analyze the legal technology and regulatory technology principles required to standardize an industry that is going to be reshaped and reborn.
Already there has been a significant overhaul in the way that commerce is done in our society. However, one thing that has not changed is the source at which the population gains and gathers their credibility and looks and seeks for reliable sources of information.
These new financial models combined with the legal flexibility of emerging technologies, will ultimate be the breeding ground to better understand how to develop and survive in uncertain economies based upon online fans and engagement including mixed reality, the metaverse, and other digital mediums.
The simplicity and complexity of sports is a circular economic approach to add value to every horizontal and vertical industry as well as economic regulatory and scientific segment of the 21st-century.
