AISpotter continues cooperation with Oulun Kärpät

AISpotter, a sports analytics services company from Oulu, and Oulun Kärpät have continued their successful cooperation during this season. Last season, Kärpät effectively utilized AISpotter’s video analysis services, especially in the playoff phase.

AISpotter is aiming to the international markets and is pleased with the cooperation with Oulun Kärpät. – We are getting feedback from Kärpät throughout the season, so we are able to continuously develop our service in the direction that the teams benefit most, says Timo Rousti, AISpotter.

AISpotter’s service is based on Artificial Intelligence and computer vision and it automatically detects key events from the game videos and produces video clips. As an example, Kärpät can use video clips containing power play and shorthanded play covering both their own and future opponent’s games, There is no need for coaches to spend several hours analyzing the game. – The time benefit for coaches is remarkable, emphasizes Lauri Mikkola from Kärpät – The overall common goal is of course the championship.

AISpotter automatically combines third-party data with a video, for example, such as game statistics and sensor data. This provides more accurate and detailed information about games for coaches. Kärpät also gets a tool that allows the coaches to customize video clips or create their own video sets for different purposes.

AISpotter Oy is a company established in Oulu that provides video analysis service based on artificial intelligence and machine vision covering e.g. ice hockey, football and floorball. A fast and self-learning system saves time and gives clear advantage in analyzing game situations.

Oulun Kärpät is a Finnish professional ice hockey team established in 1946 based in Oulu and playing in the top-tier Finnish Liiga. Kärpät have won the Finnish championship title eight times and have been one of the most successful Finnish ice hockey teams in the 2000s and 2010s.
