Computer Scientists of the Johannes Gutenberg-University have developed a new software to analyze complex situations in football matches
The software "Soccer" developed by Prof. Jürgen Perl uses artificial neuronal networks in order to discover complex patterns, e.g. in exactly which match situation the player has lost the ball.
With the help of so called Voronoi-cells it is possible to analyse the gaining as well as the mastering of space, information that a trainer would find almost impossible to capture with his naked eye.
