If you are passionate about football and data, this demo workshop 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 workshop you will learn about the (xG) Model.
What is an Expected Goals (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). You will learn how to:
- Prepare match data on Autonomous to make it ready for analysis
- Visualize data on a football pitch
- Train your own xG machine learning model
- Apply your model to recent matches to understand team and player performance
Join us for this fun and exciting session and experience what it is to be a football analyst.
