Hey there everyone! I am working on a startup that applies video recognition and analysis to analyze athletic performance. The more I am working in this field the more I am becoming aware of the many pitfalls and controversies that this may cause. It is interesting for me to see that sports is a field where more and more novel technologies are being applied - sometimes in favour of the players, other times as a drawback causing access to their privacy and having an impact on their future career, other times it goes in an changes the game itself completely. There are also legal aspects related to data collection as well as ethical concerns regarding fair-play, access to technology etc.
Seems to me that there is more and more technology being introduced in sports impacting the game itself (100 m. sprint, swimming, football, golf etc), and I started wondering whether there exists a framework or some base for a discussion to assess the value, ethics, etc. of introducting a new technology? It can even be from a philosophical standpoint!
Any feedback greatly appreciated
