The NFL and Amazon are collaborating to create a 'Digital Athlete' simulation, which will be used to predict injuries. The Digital Athlete system is able to run through potential game scenarios and determine injuries that could occur. The system will run on Amazon's AI, machine learning, and computer vision technology, as well as data sets form the NFL.
Overall, the simulations could provide further insights into the underlying causes of game day injuries. The two organizations will also work toward new concussion identifying techniques in the future.
The NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, spoke about the Digital Athlete system and its potential implications, "The outcomes of our collaboration with AWS -- and what we will learn about the human body and how injuries happen -- could reach far beyond football."
