Plan your year of data analytics training with our 2021 series of free webinars.
In this webinar, Rob Mastrodomenico will look at the fundamental principles behind the beautiful game, specifically how you can characterise what is important and not important in a match between two sides.
Rob will introduce a machine learning approach applied to football. The method assumes goals scored by each team can be modelled allowing us to obtain ability parameters for each team. The method will be demonstrated via a first principles approach building up from a very simple model to the final model. Rob will demonstrate how the output can be used to make predictions of upcoming games via a number of real life examples including the English Premier League.
