Predicting the outcome of team movements - Player time series analysis using fuzzy and deep methods for representation learning

  title={Predicting the outcome of team movements - Player time series analysis using fuzzy and deep methods for representation learning},
  author={Omid Shokrollahi and Bahman Rohani and Amin Nobakhti},
We extract and use player position time-series data, tagged along with the action types, to build a competent model for representing team tactics behavioral patterns and use this representation to predict the outcome of arbitrary movements. We provide a framework for the useful encoding of short tactics and space occupations in a more extended sequence of movements or tactical plans. We investigate game segments during a match in which the team in possession of the ball regularly attempts to… Expand

Deep Learning of Player Trajectory Representations for Team Activity Analysis
Team sports such as ice hockey and basketball involve complex player interactions. Modeling how players interact with each other presents a great challenge to researchers in the ield of sportsExpand
A Multiresolution Stochastic Process Model for Predicting Basketball Possession Outcomes
A framework for using optical player tracking data to estimate, in real time, the expected number of points obtained by the end of a possession, called expected possession value (EPV), derives from a stochastic process model for the evolution of a basketball possession. Expand
Deep soccer analytics: learning an action-value function for evaluating soccer players
A novel soccer Goal Impact Metric (GIM) applies values from the learned Q-function, to measure a player’s overall performance by the aggregate impact values of his actions over all the games in a season, and its correlations with standard measures of soccer success are higher than that computed with other state-of-the-art soccer metrics.

Classifying NBA Offensive Plays Using Neural Networks
The amount of raw information available for basketball analytics has been given a great boost with the availability of player tracking data. This facilitates detailed analyses of player movementExpand
tHoops: A Multi-Aspect Analytical Framework for Spatio-Temporal Basketball Data
3D tensor decomposition can facilitate a variety of tasks in the work-flow of a franchise's basketball operations as well as in the sports analytics research community, and has applications that go beyond purely pattern analysis. Expand
Large-Scale Analysis of Soccer Matches Using Spatiotemporal Tracking Data
This paper presents a "role-based" representation that dynamically updates each player's relative role at each frame and demonstrates how this captures the short-term context to enable both individual player and team analysis. Expand
Learning Fine-Grained Spatial Models for Dynamic Sports Play Prediction
Focusing on basketball, a latent factor modeling approach is employed, which leads to a compact data representation that enables efficient prediction given raw spatiotemporal tracking data and can make accurate in-game predictions. Expand
Detecting tactical patterns in basketball: Comparison of merge self-organising maps and dynamic controlled neural networks
In conclusion, MSOMs are a useful tool to analyse spatial-temporal data, especially in team sports, by their direct inclusion of different time length of tactical patterns, they open up new opportunities within team sports. Expand
Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Team Sports
This article categorises the research efforts that use spatio-temporal data from team sports as input and involve non-trivial computation in a coherent framework and identifies a number of open research questions. Expand
Possession Sketches : Mapping NBA Strategies
We present Possession Sketches, a new machine learning method for organizing and exploring a database of basketball player-tracks. Our method organizes basketball possessions by offensive structure.Expand
