Changing The Paradigm in Sports Analytics: From Walled Gardens to Open Access


See slides here

Despite the exponential growth in interest and enthusiasm for sports analytics, we have not seen a corresponding increase in the rate and quality of discovery. This is largely due to a lack of quality data being available to passionate, talented people. Vantage Sports wants to change this reality.

Vantage has combined NBA minds (headed by Ryan Blake) with world-class technical talent (ex-Google engineer) to create technology that aggregates more than 16,000 unique and relevant data points/game. It successfully mixes traditional scouting with the tenets of rigorous analytical analysis. This presentation will introduce Vantage’s data set as well as a few of the new metrics that we can derive for every phase of the game and lay the groundwork for future discovery.
