Debate: Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence


MLB and Tech Duels teamed up for a game-changing debate about tech and baseball!

MLB is stepping up to the plate and advancing our Machine Learning capabilities. With the introduction of Statcast - our high-speed, high-accuracy, automated tool developed to analyze player movements and athletic abilities - we are sliding into a new era of advanced analytics.

As the technology leader in pro sports, we are advancing our lead by investing in AI, Machine Learning and Computer Vision in an effort to enhance fan experience by providing unique ways to connect with your favorite teams and players.

Tech Duels is proud to team up with Major League Baseball for a legendary debate about Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in sports. We’ll be exploring many angles around the question: Is it possible to entirely remove human-induced bias from ML/AI models? And we’ll look at how these advancements are anything but a spectator sport.

Don’t miss an evening of debate, drinks, dishes and networking with New York’s ML/AI community!
