VIDEO: Santhosh Narayanan presents at the OptaPro Analytics Forum

Article by Santhosh Narayanan

PhD student Santhosh Narayanan presented at this year’s OptaPro Analytics Forum, summarising the key findings from a project which applied Opta data to model event sequences with the objective of building a real-time match simulator.

Building on the Hawkes process mathematical model, Santhosh’s model incorporates multivariate point processes to establish the relationship between one event in a possession sequence and the likely outcome of the next, which in turn can help predict the occurrence of events leading to goals.
