Programme & speakers
Playing to win: the role of statistics in sport David Percy, Salford Business School
We will investigate a few of the incredible contributions that statistics has upon a huge range of sporting activity. In particular, there are increasing trends in the use of technology in sport and the collection of extensive data sets for use by participants, coaches, broadcasters and spectators. These involve considerable amounts of mathematical modelling and statistical analysis, offering substantial employment opportunities for talented and dynamic individuals.
