Abstract [en]

Kernel-based machine learning methods are gaining increasing interest in flow modeling and prediction in recent years. Gaussian process (GP) is one example of such kernelbased methods, which can provide very good performance for nonlinear problems. In this work, we apply GP regression to flow modeling and prediction of athletes in ski races, but the proposed framework can be generally applied to other use cases with device trajectories of positioned data. Some specific aspects can be addressed when the data is periodic, like in sports where the event is split up over multiple laps along a specific track. Flow models of both the individual skier and a cluster of skiers are derived and analyzed. Performance has been evaluated using data from the Falun Nordic World Ski Championships 2015, in particular the Men’s cross country 4 × 10 km relay. The results show that the flow models vary spatially for different skiers and clusters. We further demonstrate that GP regression provides powerful and accurate models for flow prediction.
