Yesterday Stefan Edberg appeared at the Infosys Confluence 2016, a summit of ideas on how the use of technology can improve any kind of industry that gathered world leaders and innovators at the Hilton Hotel in San Francisco from April 27th to 29th.
The meeting was organized by Infosys, an Indian multinational corporation that provides business consulting, information technology and outsourcing services.
Thanks to his experience of innovation at the Södra Climate Arena in Växjö, the first tennis hall completely built using passive house technology and one of the few where a Play Sight system for the analysis of coaching stats was installed, Stefan Edberg was there to talk about the growing importance of big data in the world of tennis.
Along with ATP World Tour CEO Chris Kermode and 1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash, Stefan of course shared some tennis memories with a crowd of high-tech enthusiasts.
Below some pictures from the event, that also featured a rock concert with Carlos Santana, and a short clipping with an excerpt of Stefan Edberg's speech. (mc)
