The Rise of the Quantified Athlete: An Experiential Forum on the Future of Athletic Performance

2/17

9:00 am — 5:00 pm
Friday, February 17, 2017

Harvard Innovation Labs

We are in the midst of a revolution in how athletes train, perform, and heal. Advances in mobile technology, AI, Big Data, sensors, GPS, and more have allowed humans to stretch the limits of their athletic capabilities and have merged the worlds of statistics and sports in manners unimaginable just a decade ago.

With unprecedented teamwork from those who have achieved success in the athletic arena to those whose achievements occur behind the closed doors of research labs, hospitals, and beyond, we are able to use data collected from the human body to monitor, measure, and predict athlete training and performance like never before.

During this event, the Harvard Innovation Labs, together with the Sports Innovation Lab and the OneTeam Collective, will explore the future of this dynamic, cross-industry, and fast-growing sector of sports technology.

This one-of-a-kind event will feature candid talks on the subject from top executives from the NFL Players’ Association as well as current and former professional athletes, leading scientists, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs building the next generation of quantified sports innovations. A few confirmed participants include former NFL quarterback and current ESPN host Matt Hasselbeck, Harvard graduate and New York Jets’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, SportsScience host John Brenkus, and Major League Lacrosse star Paul Rabil. In addition, the event will include an innovation showcase to display the most cutting-edge wearable technologies of the day. (Full list of participants below.)

The day will end with a special announcement from the OneTeam Collective to challenge participants to tackle the most difficult obstacles facing athletes and coaches quantifying performance today.
