6:40 - Talk: Playing "Moneyball" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moneyball) on Fifa 2015
The book "Moneyball: The Art Of Winning An Unfair Game" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moneyball) inspired many people and showed how to merge two passions: sports and data. In this presentation I will show how I added a third passion (video games) to the mix and was able to play "Moneyball" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moneyball) as a Manager on EA Fifa 2015.
