When AI revolutionizes sport: a 1time world

Artificial Intelligence has been involved in the practice of sport for many years. Athletes are major consumers of connected and intelligent objects, which are increasingly easy to access and of high quality, in particular for measuring, collecting or analyzing performance (for example a connected watch).

During this exchange, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, professional tennis player, and Alice Modolo, freediver, presented the advantages of integrating AI into their respective sports.
