#AIChat recap (March and April 2021)

#AIChat is a monthly Twitter chat that helps you figure out how artificial intelligence (AI) impacts your life. And work.

In March, the question was: how do I get money/fund my AI project.

In April, the question was: how can AI help an athlete recover faster from their concussion? And train better?

Mistakes are mine.


March 2021: how do I get the money/fund my AI project.

April: the #AIChat topic was: how can AI help an athlete recover faster from their concussion? And help them train better? NB: Neurovine and I were busy in April to hold our chat.

First, this is how Neurovine uses AI: it includes an app, headband and heart rate monitor: link

Second, here are the steps machine learning uses to see how bad the concussion is for an athlete: link

Last, this is how one soccer (football if you’re reading this in Europe) team is using AI to become a better team: link

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
