In March 2011, a sports scientist named Stafford Murray attended a Formula One preseason ritual in Barcelona. For the 12 Formula One teams, these so-called testing events are an opportunity to unveil new cars, try out new technology, and adapt to new racing regulations before the start of the world championship.

Back then, McLaren had two former world champion drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson … [Read more...] about How McLaren Learned to Treat Its Pit Crew Like Athletes

He was making web apps for Apple when one night he was playing in a recreational basketball game, and his wife and two daughters dropped by to watch him play. “I couldn’t make a single shot in front of them,” Lee told Business … [Read more...] about Ex-Apple engineers created an app to track basketball shots using AI, and it’s already getting attention from Mark Cuban and the NBA
