Catapult Group International

The sports analytics provider starred after listing in December 2014, its 55¢ issued share racing to $4 within 18 months. Investors loved Catapult's prospects in wearables technology that helps elite sporting teams monitor athletes' performance and manage injury risk.

But Catapult's 2016 acquisition of XOS Technologies, a provider of digital and video analytics software, and Kodaplay, a developer of wearables analytics software for "prosumers" (keen amateurs) tested the market. The correction in small-cap growth stocks in the fourth quarter of 2016 intensified selling in Catapult.

Monash Investors co-founder and director Simon Shields says this price weakness is an opportunity. Shields rates Catapult's potential in the prosumer market, as amateurs and schools embrace the same sports analytics technology that elite teams have used for years.

"Catapult's next big leg of growth is prosumers," he says. "We envisage schools subscribing to the technology on a per-player, per-month subscription model, which in time will add to the visibility and recurring nature of Catapult's earnings and the strength of its business model."

Recent news that Major League Baseball in the United States had approved Catapult as a vendor for Global Positioning System-based wearables technology added 11 per cent to its share price. The approval exposes Catapult to 272 major and minor league baseball teams and lifts its profile among US schools for student baseball teams.

Shields says Catapult's estimated 12 per cent share of its industry is much larger than competitors. That enhances Catapult's ability to compete with lower-priced products. This month, research group IDC predicted global sales of technology wearables – smart watches, smart clothing, "hearables" (smart headphones) and other gadgets – would double by 2021.

Did artificial intelligence help the Western Bulldogs win the AFL flag? The Sons of the West certainly played a pack-centred style of football, in contrast with the more flowing play of opposing teams.

On grand final day they excelled at catapulting the ball out of packs like there was no tomorrow. After two or three lightning handpasses, the ball would be with a Bulldog in the open, and on the way to a goal. Coach Luke Beveridge can take credit for forming a "handball club" to teach players to punch ballistic missiles. The Bulldogs have been the No 1 handball­ing side out of stoppages.

But don't discount the role of computer machine learning — a form of artificial intelligence — in helping shape the Doggies' game play. They are among a few AFL clubs going hi-tech to gain an edge....... ....... Machine learning is about computers making sense of the screeds of data that can flow from matches and training sessions. In AFL game play, that could mean analysing the movements of players in a match and simulating the outcome if they had acted differently. The Bulldogs can analyse who is owning different parts of the ground based on their location — a concept they've borrowed from soccer. Another is to measure congestion.....

For about five years the Bulldogs and other club players have worn a tracking device with a GPS or local positioning system for Melbourne's Etihad Stadium, accelerometer and gyroscope sewn into the top rear section of their jumpers. Data can be collected about the location of every player at every moment of a match, in the way a Fitbit or Garmin wearable device can track exercise.

Fast computers can merge each player's data into a single time and motion study of the entire match. It can identify position, velocity and acceleration at any moment. Staff then can look at alternative game plays and model outcomes. By linking two players they can observe tagging and how well their movement is coupled.

Analysis sometime involves small bits of game play. "We will look at one-minute, two-minute and five-minute increments, and to go back and create a retrospective model."

So far Robertson has offered this analysis after games on a Monday. "The next stage is to use that in the coach's box. It's something we'll look to implement in 2017....

Game play is only one area where Robertson values machine learning. He has used it to look at the types of players on the Bulldogs list who may have deficiencies, what combination of players work best together and what types of players they need from the draft. Player maintenance, injury management and player game day selection are other applications....

from the news wires......

Loyalty software provider Catuity (CAT.AU) up 43% at A$20.00,
earlier at 15 month high A$20.75, after U.S.-based company's President/CEO John
Racine interviewed July 1 by online media provider Wall Street Network, to
discuss company's switch from smart card to point-of-sale software company.
Follows agreement with gift certificate supplier Certifichecks to deploy CAT's
software system, CALS, across its 70,000 plus merchants in U.S., which boosted
shares. CAT's NASDAQ listed CTTY up 34% overnight to US$15.69, with first
deployment of software providing hope of more customers and revenue to come.
