Q&A with Patrick Lucey, STATS’ Director of Data Science and 2016 MIT Sloan Research Paper Competition Winner


MIT Sloan recently sat down with 2016 Research Competition winner and STATS’ Director of Data Science, Patrick Lucey, to talk about what it was like winning the competition and his experience being a part of the conference.

Read Patrick and team’s winning paper, “The Thin Edge of the Wedge”: Accurately Predicting Shot Outcomes in Tennis using Style and Context Priors, which aimed to discover player-specific patterns of player movement and ball striking in tennis which are indicative of changing the probability of winning a point in professional tennis.
