Data Science in the Sports Industry
The sports industry generated $90 billion in revenue for 2017 and is a world completely saturated with statistics: What is the likelihood of team A defeating team B with its current roster of players? Since player X has been injured, how will that impact the probability of team A making it to the finals? As a sports statistician, you will be responsible for building predictive models based on an array of data, e.g., individual player performance, team performance, etc. Much like being a data scientist, you’ll need to have some programming knowledge along with advanced statistical analysis skills.
