If you are passionate about football and data, this live hands-on-lab is for you! Thanks to our partnership with Premier League you have the unique opportunity to experience first-hand what it is to be a football analyst and apply advanced analytics and machine learning to real match data!
In this first hands-on-lab you will learn about the (xG) Model.
Expected goals (xG) is a predictive model used to assess every goal-scoring chance, and the likelihood of scoring. The xG model computes for each chance, the probability to score based on factors such as distance, position of defenders, type and speed of pass, type of shot, shot angles and various other aspects (Event-based variables).
Join us for this fun and exciting session and experience what it is to be a football analyst.
You will get access to your own free tier cloud environment to work on the analytical challenges.
