Managing Performance Using Data Analytics: Some Lessons from Elite Team Sports

"Moneyball", the bestselling book and Hollywood movie, shows how the Oakland A's, a small-market team in Major League Baseball, have used data analytics to develop a "David" strategy to compete with resource-rich goliaths such as the New York Yankees. "Moneyball" has encouraged teams around the world to embrace analytics as a potential source of competitive advantage. Bill, a former consultant with the A's, has developed coach-led analytics with several teams in different sports in several countries.

In his presentation, Bill will share the lessons he has learnt on how to integrate data analytics effectively into the performance management process. He will argue that it is crucial for organisations to have a strong cultural commitment to evidence-based practice in which managers and analysts have a mutual respect for each other's contributions to the continuing search for the best ways to improve future performance.

    Diana Kelley, Cybersecurity Field CTO, Microsoft
    AI will enable breakthrough advances in areas like healthcare, agriculture, education and transportation; it’s already happening in many ways. But new technology also inevitably raises complex questions and broad societal concerns. As we look to a future powered by a partnership between computers and humans, it’s important that we address these challenges head on and address:

    • How do we ensure that AI is designed and used responsibly?
    • How do we establish ethical principles to protect people?
    • How should we govern its use?
    • And how will AI impact employment and jobs?

    To answer these questions, technologists will need to work closely with government, academia, business, civil society and other stakeholders. And focus on ethical principles – fairness, reliability and safety, privacy and security, inclusivity, transparency, and accountability – to guide the cross-disciplinary development and use of artificial intelligence for business and cyber. In this talk we’ll share the principle ethics of AI & ML and have a discussion about how we can all work together to forward AI and ML use responsibly.
