NFL and AWS Launch Artificial Intelligence Challenge to Crowdsource Ways to Automate Player Identification using NFL Game Footage

The NFL kicked off this week, and in partnership with Amazon Web Services have launched an open source contest that aims to help reduce injuries on the field–specifically identifying and tracking players involved in helmet impact.

The initiative aims to help the NFL monitor and prevent occurences of Chronic Traumatic Encephalitis or CTE, a so far incurable and minimally treatable, brain injury known to occur in people who experience repeated head trauma.
