Computers are a essentially vital instrument in game technology examine, activities functionality research and, more and more, in training and schooling programmes in recreation. This e-book defines the sphere of ‘sport informatics’, explaining how computing device technological know-how can be utilized to resolve sport-related difficulties, in either examine and utilized aspects.

Beginning with a transparent rationalization of the useful rules of and software program, the publication examines the most important practical parts during which machine technological know-how is hired in activity, including:

  • knowledge discovery and database development
  • data acquisition, together with units for measuring functionality data
  • motion monitoring and research systems
  • modelling and simulation
  • match research systems
  • e-learning and multimedia in activities education

Bridging the space among thought and perform, this ebook is critical examining for any scholar, researcher or practitioner operating in recreation technology, game functionality research, study equipment in game, utilized laptop technological know-how or informatics.

Informatics Claude Elwood Shannon is widely credited as the ‘father of information theory’ (james, 2009). Since his pioneering work on representation and transformation of information (Shannon, 1948), this new informatics as a field of science has emerged from a solely theoretical discipline to an application-oriented discipline. Initially responding to the needs of advancing computers, informatics has become the science of searching, accessing, processing, presenting, sorting, transmitting and storing data.

Data compression In order to efficiently process, analyse and store data it is critical to determine a preliminary estimate of the amount of data to be collected. This amount is frequently underestimated, leading to a shortage of hard disk space and slow running of the computer. Data sets can easily become too large to transfer (e-mail programs limit the size of the attachment) or even to store on a hard drive (file size is limited by the file system or the operating system). Consequently, there is a need to decrease the amount of data and save disk space data using either lossy or lossless compression algorithms.

When more sophisticated formats such as font variations, character size and information layout is added, it is called ‘rich text’. Apart from text, any large bit sequence is called a file and file formats are necessary to also code the structure and ordering of data within a file. The way of recognizing the file format is the so-called extension added after the file name and a dot. The most common data file formats are (including extensions): • • • • • DOC, DOCX: the format for Microsoft Word rich text documents that can be read or converted by a large number of applications.
