Morgen (7 april) is er ook een seminar en dat gaat over data en sport (en niet per se wielrennen). Hier ga ik in ieder geval naartoe.

Data and sports are an exciting combination. Can performance be improved by using available data?
Can new types of data be gathered that will yield novel insights in performance?
How can easured data be visualized to be optimally usable for supporting staff?
Which data related questions are urgent in various disciplines in sports?

Komende donderdag is dit symposium over techniek in het fietsen al! Schrijf je dus nog snel in. We zullen met WTOS in ieder geval te vinden zijn voor, tussen en na de presentaties, en we zullen de presentaties zelf natuurlijk ook bijwonen. Deelname is gratis, maar schrijf je van tevoren wel even in via de website!
Pas de pain, pas de gain.
