LBi Dynasty at the 2020 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference

Last week, LBi Dynasty attended the 14th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics conference  (MIT SSAC) in Boston.  The conference brings together leading figures in sports management, analytics, and technology to explore data and how to share it. This year’s theme was “Run the Numbers”, emphasizing the use of analytics and information in all team-building and business decisions. Running the numbers empowers teams and organizations to generate meaningful insights, navigate uncertainty, and compete effectively.
