⚽️ Through the lens of the football industry, we’ll look at many examples of how various data science techniques have helped SL Benfica refine their business methodology.

Having the skills of a data scientist provides you with a unique opportunity to make your teammates excel at their job. Regardless of the role, our jobs rely on a comprehensive decision-making process. Data science can help us tell stories from the data that we collect, enabling the decision making process to be well informed.

We’ll end the talk with an open discussion on what the ideal profiles are of a data scientist and of a business executive who wants to make data-driven decisions.

👨🏻‍🏫Meet our speaker:

Sudarshan “Suds” Gopaladesikan ( is the Head Sports Data Scientist for SL Benfica, focusing on improving the knowledge pipeline for the coaching staff to make better decisions when developing high-performance athletes.

Prior to joining Benfica, he was a Program Manager at Microsoft, focusing on Natural Language Processing within the context of Business Intelligence. As the old Mark Twain adage, he never let school get in the way of his education. Respecting the importance of his formal mathematics training, his journey of integrating a more interdisciplinary skillset has shown him that anything is possible through the adoption of a “life-long learner” mindset.

⏱ The Data Science Bootcamp Information Session is taking place at 6:30 PM before the Data Talk.
