Group activity classification in sports with machine learning

Within a team sports environment, coordinated behaviours between teammates are crucial to success. To accurately detect and correctly classify group behaviours, the actions of the individuals must be considered. Within a sporting environment the problem is further complicated by the presence of an opposing team, who are seeking to counter and disrupt the other team.While there is a substantial volume of research concerning activity detection and related tasks such as segmentation and anticipation from video footage, these tasks are less …

Path prediction in sports with machine learning

The ability to predict the future movement of an agent has many applications, from anticipating behaviours within an autonomous driving environment to detecting abnormal behaviours in a security setting. Within sports, being able to predict paths has applications for match analysis, strategy planning, and automated broadcasting.Path prediction is typically performed at an individual level, predicting the future path of each person (or the ball) in turn. While such predictions may consider the locations and past movements of other players (both …

The efficacy of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training in community sport

Organised sport is primarily community based in Australia; and the benefits of sport participation to individuals and communities are well documented. However, there is also evidence that participating in organised high-performance sporting programs is associated with psychological distress, elevated relative to community norms, which would usually warrant a need for care by a health professional. As such a case for improvement in mental health education and practice in sporting communities exists.Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a standardised, psychoeducational programme …

“No vaccine = no service” – Investigating consumer reactions of service exclusion

A growing number of countries in Europe have introduced a ‘hospitality green pass’ (EU Digital COVID Certificate) which is a paper document or app that proves the holder has been fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19. It grants consumers access to indoor restaurants, bars, cafes and other indoor venues. That is, without proof of a COVID-19 vaccination, consumers will be prohibited to enter these indoor areas.However, the introduction of green passes has also led to some backlash. For instance, some …

Assessing the greater need for drug quantity threshold requirements in anti-doping sport cases

Technological advancements in the equipment and laboratories used by anti-doping bodies, means that minute levels of prohibited substances can be detected in an athlete's blood or urine. This had led to an increase in athletes testing positive for prohibited substances, where the quantity of that substance in the athlete's sample is very low.This project will consider whether and how the issue of threshold requirements for prohibited substances should be further regulated.
