PointStream is a new tracking system currently in beta from IBM. Deployed for the first time at the Australian Open, PointStream takes vital statistics collected from technicians on the court, such as the type of stroke, speed of ball, faults, unforced errors and more, and graphs them so that a user can watch how their player is tracking in real time.
The minds behind the project say that the PointStream program can be duplicated and applied to other major events, such as the Queensland flood crisis, to aid analysis.
