Real Time Decision Making in Professionals Sports. From Description to Prediction and Prescription.

Thanks to the amount of data that has been collected in recent decades in the world of football, we try to answer the right questions that have always existed around it, and from dimensions like never have been answered, such as for example How will a player perform next season in my team, What should I do to avoid conceding a goal? or What should I do so that players are not injured?

For this, Artificial Intelligence is the discipline that best adapts to this scenario, being able to aproach the predictive and prescriptive dimensions, beyond the mere description offered by the data collection as currently occurs in the sector and allowing the development of several solutions in the main departments of professional football clubs and related entities.
