Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Tuesday, November 26 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks Partner With AWS
The Cloud. Machine Learning. Artificial Intelligence.
These are all terms I’m sure you may have come across out in the world in the tech space. You may be thinking, “The Cloud? How can this be useful in the game of football?”
If you remember Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett’s spectacular toe-tap catch in the back corner of the end zone during the Seahawks’ Week 10 win over the Rams, NFL’s Next Gen Stats program measured the probability of that catch was 6.3%. Next Gen Stats actually uses Amazon’s cloud computing technology and sensor data for player tracking, player health and wellness data, and scouting information.
With all that said, the Seattle Seahawks announced on Monday that they’re selecting Amazon Web Services as its Cloud, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence Provider. The team will use the breadth and depth of AWS’s services, including compute, storage, database, analytics, and ML to drive deep analysis of game footage to inform game strategy, improve operational efficiencies, and accelerate decision-making to advance team performance game-to-game.
Seahawks Vice President of Technology Chip Suttles has been a key player in this newly-formed partnership with AWS. Suttles explains, “As our official cloud provider, AWS will enable the Seahawks to become a data-driven organization that uses the power of technology to fuel future championships. We chose AWS because of their relentless focus on innovation, their broad array of machine learning services, and proven experience in supporting large sports organizations and enterprises around the world at scale.”
Seahawks President Chuck Arnold also weighed in on the partnership, saying, “We strive to be a consistent championship-caliber team on and off the field, which includes equipping our football operations with the best tools possible to win… We are thrilled to collaborate with AWS and their unmatched analytics services to leverage the power of data and make an instant impact on our team.”
