New resaerch with title “Generating Weekly Training Plans in the Style of a Professional Swimming Coach Using Genetic Algorithms and Random Trees”
Optimal training planning is a combination of art and science, a time-consuming task that requires expert knowledge. As such, it is often exclusively available to top tier athletes. Many athletes outside the elite do not have access or cannot afford to hire a professional coach to help them create their training plans. In this study, we investigate if it is possible to use the historical training logs of elite swimmers to construct detailed weekly training plans similar to how a specific professional coach would have planned. We present a software system based on machine learning and genetic algorithms for generation of detailed weekly training plans based on desired volume, intensity, training frequency, and athlete characteristics. The system schedules training sessions from a library extracted from training plans written by a professional swimming coach. Results show that the proposed system is able to generate highly accurate training plans in terms of training load, types of sessions, and structure, compared to the human coach.

On Thursday, March 24, we conducted a workshop on Health and Sports Tech at BTH. Many good collaborations were made for further development around this exciting area.
Several different institutions came together to jointly develop Health and Sports Tech together with the Vice Chancellor.
In our work to be a partner to develop new product for Health & Sports are we using different student projects.
During the autumn 2021 where we project costumer to a student group in product development/Design Thinking
