Based on the performance and play style of striker Edison Cavani at PSG, artificial intelligence (AI) believes this will be a successful contract with Man Utd.
Technology company Olocip predicts Edinson Cavani will score 20 or 21 Premier League goals for Man Utd in the 2020-2021 season, without penalty, if playing 100% of maximum minutes. This achievement drops to 14 or 15 goals, if the Uruguayan rookie only plays 70% of the time. On average, about 161 minutes, the 33-year-old striker will score one goal.
In addition to the number of goals, Olocip also predicts Cavani assists, 4-5 times (if playing 100% of the minutes) and 3-4 times (if playing 70% of the minutes).
Olocip is a Spanish-based AI company where former Real Madrid player Esteban Granero co-owns. One of the main research directions for the company is to provide models that predict how players will affect when they switch clubs. This project has been in operation since 2015, with the inspiration being to minimize the risk for both the player and the team before making a decision.
Usually, when a club decides to buy a player, they come up with their own needs and set some selection criteria. Then, based on data available from all over the world, the team that needs to buy will shorten the target list, and then send scouts to watch the live stream. Olocip’s approach is an advanced step. Thanks to AI, this company will always predict the performance of a new player when he returns to the team.
“Any data company can tell you how a player has played in the past, but most cannot tell what he can do in the future, in a team. new ball, “said Granero. “They face a lot of uncertain events like new teammates, leagues, coaches, opponents, age. We will help them, both the players and the club, answer.”
Two leading AI professors in Spain, Pedro Larranaga and Concha Bielza – Granero’s colleagues – will study more than 200 variables to truly reflect on achievement, physical condition, and psychology. of players when arriving at a new stop.
Olocip’s outstanding achievement is an approximate sketch of Cristiano Ronaldo’s form in the 2018-2019 season, after CR7 joined Juventus. In September 2018, on behalf of the company, Granero predicted a series of Ronaldo’s achievements in Turin. After one year, the results are tested and proven accurate. Olocip predicts Ronaldo to score an average of 0.76 goals a game (actually 0.73), assisting 0.24 times a game (actually 0.27).
Before Cavani arrived at Man Utd, Granero, on behalf of Olocip, advised the old team Real to buy the Uruguayan striker. But due to the influence of Covid-19, the Bernabeu owner only sells and lends, not buy anyone in the summer of 2020.
Granero came up from the training center and played a few years at Real. He was established in Sociedad and Espanyol. In January 2020, the 32-year-old midfielder came to play for the third-tier team Marbella. Granero’s best results were winning La Liga 2012 and the 2011 King’s Cup with Real. In addition, he also won the European Championship with Spain U19 team. In April 2020, Granero announced the use of AI in the prevention of Covid-19.
In the summer of 2020, when Lionel Messi asked to leave Barca, Olocip said that PSG will be the stop to help him score the most goals. Meanwhile, Man City helps Messi create the most. If you return to your home country to wear Newell’s Old Boys, the owner of the six Golden Balls can achieve terrible results: scoring 12 goals and 7 assists in the first 23 days of the season
