This week one of our most frequent guests, ’The Prof’ Paul Laursen, is back. Why has he been on so often? Because he always offers so much value to any conversation and this one is no different. Today we chat about artificial intelligence (A.I.) and The Prof’s new project

Like it or not, the machines are coming and AI is here to stay. It’s been around for many years in other spheres but now coaching apps and platforms are starting to make progress with it, and your life will be a lot easier when the app you use can effectively ‘crunch’ all of the data from your gadgets and wearables. So, will this make coaches redundant? Definitely not! Machines will never be able to replace the empathy that good coaches have with their clients. Having said that, the future will be different and we need to embrace this opportunity. We get into the weeds chatting about a couple of issues around COVID. In the conversation Paul explains all of this as we chat about:

  • What exactly is artificial intelligence?
  • How AI benefits athletes and coaches
  • Machine learning vs pattern recognition
  • How works
  • The irony that the most important elements to Athletica are NOT data driven
  • Intelligence vs wisdom and why coaches with wisdom are irreplaceable
  • Returning to training after COVID and why it’s no different to recovering from the flu
  • Nutrients and Vitamin D - The Profs two BIG ways to protect your immune system
