The Dubai Artificial Intelligence in Sports events will examine the role of artificial intelligence in the global sports industry. Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, Clarence Seedorf to speak at AI conference in Dubai, according to Business Arabia Newsletter.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and former Dutch football star Clarence Seedorf will be among the speakers at the upcoming Dubai Artificial Intelligence in Sports (DAIS) conference and expedition, organisers announced on Saturday.

The two-day event which begins on October 14 will focus on the role that artificial intelligence can play in enhancing the global sports industry.

Zidane will be appearing on the first day of the conference, while Seedorf will speak alongside Ukrainian Olympic gold medallist swimmer Yana Klochkova on the second day.

Other speakers at the event will include Colin Webster, the president of the International eSports Federation, as well as Donnie Nelson, the general manager and president of basketball operations at the Dallas Mavericks, HyperloopTT chairman Bibop Gresta and Simon Clegg, the chief executive of the British Olympic Association.

Also in attendance will be Professor Jesse Davis from the department of computer science at Belgian research university KU Leuven. A recent study conducted by KU Leuven and data intelligence firm SciSports analysed nearly 7,000 matches across seven competitions to see how football players perform under pressure and what decisions they make in critical match situations.

The event will also host sessions revolving around biomedical research and data and machine learning-enabled injury forecasting in football.
