Bringing AI to Tennis with Apeak (ft. Brian Park)
Welcome to Season 10, Episode 15, of the ParentingAces Podcast, part of the Tennis Channel Podcast Network.
To listen to this week’s episode:
To watch the video version of this episode:
Artificial Intelligence has been around for quite a while now. Even though it has been incorporated into other sports training, tennis has been slow to hop on the AI bandwagon. Until now!
Brian Park grew up in Korea then moved to Australia to enhance his junior tennis training and development. He then moved to the US to pursue a college tennis experience at Utah State University before trying his hand on the pro tennis tour. He quickly realized he had the physical skills to compete and win but was missing some of the mental skills needed to find success. Brian returned to school to get a graduate degree in sport psychology and used his new-found knowledge in his role as a junior tennis coach.
Brian eventually enlisted the help of a team of software engineers to create the first AI-based app for tennis, and Apeak was born.
I encourage you to watch the video version of this episode so you can see the app in action – it is so exciting! It requires engagement from the player to go through the various stages of building mental skills and moving on to the next higher level of development.
