However, after a delivery meeting with our client Aliaxis, we had a side discussion with Fabian Seunier, Group Head of Venturing, and talked about innovation scouting in the sports world. Fabian is a tennis player and mentioned that there should be innovation in the virtual tennis coaching world and he’d be curious to see how Novable works on such a briefing. As we always look for good opportunities to use our algos, it was fun to take on the challenge and make it our next Staff Picked story.
The following briefing was given: “I am looking for a company that offers a service or a product, tracking a tennis player’s activity in real-time. Using the state-of-the-art virtual technology (e.g., sensor, wearable tracker, AI, AR, etc.) to produce insights on a player’s performance. This solution should enable a player to improve their skills with minimal supervision enabling them to improve at a faster pace”. The following 12 startups were suggested by Novable’s algorithms, all following the corporate innovation trend.
