Artificial Intelligence does not understand football, but it reveals relevant patterns and details for professionals, specialists and executives who want to identify key points for consistent improvement in their businesses. This is a post game analysis, but it can be done in real time or even deepened on demand. One of the great advantages of AI is the capacity for in-depth analysis in real time, keeping the business in question at a high level of dynamism.
