IBM and the Future of Baseball – coming soon

It’s rare when pursuing personal interests actually constitutes work. But today was one of those days.

After waking up at a cruelly early hour, a colleague and I drove up to Boston to film the next installment of the ongoing IBM podcast series, “IBM and the Future of…” But, as a departure of our normal format, this will be filmed, and, importantly, this will be about baseball.

What’s the connection between IBM and baseball? Well, I won’t share all the details as to not spoil the fun, but the thrust of the piece is that technology is playing a much greater role in how the game is played by professional teams, and how it’s enjoyed by fans. Needless to say, this will be a SABRMetrics friendly piece.

Keep your eyes out for it. We are hoping to wrap up the final bits of the piece in the coming week or two. In the meantime, check out past episodes of the series to catch up on what the future holds for energy, water, Africa, and a host of other interesting topics.
