Intel is leveraging AI technology to help athletes reach their top performance. 

Powered by computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI), the company’s three-dimensional, athlete tracking technology (3DAT) allows coaches to capture movement and make adjustments in real-time. 

Originally unveiled at the 2020 Olympic Games, Intel’s 3DAT uses four pan-mounted, mobile cameras to map an athlete’s form and movement. By using computer vision and AI, it can extract information about an athlete’s form, including posture of key body parts as well as motion trajectory. 

With 3DAT, no sensors or suits are needed to evaluate performance. Instead, Intel is using AI to detect points on the body. That data is then used to reconstruct a 3D skeleton model from which they can extract biomechanics, velocity and acceleration, all data that can help athletes hone their skills. 

“By providing precise skeletal analysis and performance metrics through simple video, athletes, coaches and anyone interested in human performance can now know what the body is doing and how to make it perform better,” according to Intel.
