Game Changer Tec & SIVOTEC Analytics President & CEO, Pete Martinez, discussed the utilization of big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning for the improvement of the human condition during a presentation at the annual meeting of the Federal Laboratories Consortium in San Antonio, Texas. Most notably, Martinez highlighted some of the breakthrough research SIVOTEC is conducting in the areas of concussion and brain trauma.
The FLC meeting brings together a most impressive union of top technology transfer executives from the country's top research institutions. Martinez remarked, "I was energized to recognize the immense synergy in this room of cutting-edge thinkers. This assembly provides the opportunity for unprecedented collaboration as well as establishing channels for the effective commercialization of innovation, all of which is geared toward understanding how data can drive us to understand the optimum performance of individuals in ways yet to be understood or discovered. The connections and collaborations established will undoubtedly facilitate the next phase of development and knowledge."
Dr. Michael Bergeron, Senior Vice President of Development & Applications of GCT company, SIVOTEC Analytics, was a presenter at the Duke Orthopaedic Surgery Movement Symposium held on March 31, 2017 in Durham, North Carolina.
Dr. Timothy Sell, Director of the Michael W. Krzyzewski Human Performance Laboratory (K-Lab) at Duke University, hosted the symposium that featured compelling perspectives from different disciplines on the role of movement in health, injury, and joint disease. Specific topics included youth athlete development, osteoarthritis, and the evolution of locomotion.
Dr. Bergeron highlighted that “It was an honor to be part of this inaugural event...as well to complement such an all-star line-up from unique disciplines. Like all complex human systems, fully appreciating the health and performance challenges and opportunities in human movement requires a holistic perspective that includes multiple domains of inter-related factors and influences.”

Pete Martinez, President & CEO of Game Changer Tec and SIVOTEC Analytics, served as a panelist at the 2017 University of Miami Sport Industry Conference to discuss how technology will change the game for athletes. Martinez, also a University of Miami alum, shared the dais with Rich Fernando of the Miami Heat, Jason DuBois of DBC Fitness, Chris Caputo of UM Men's Basketball, and Brendan Reilly of Eon Sports.
Martinez noted that the intersection of sport and health for athletes is best handled by leveraging technology to understand how athletes can achieve optimum performance.

Dr. Bergeron, Senior Vice President of Development & Applications of GCT company, SIVOTEC Analytics, chaired a symposium and presented at The IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury & Illness in Sport in Monaco, 16-18 March 2017.
This premier triennial international conference boasts a diverse faculty representing the pre-eminent international authorities in injury and illness prevention, athletic performance, and health in sport. It continues to provide a unique opportunity for the global sport and exercise medicine community to meet face-to-face to share best practices and new directions.
“A predominant emphasis of this IOC Conference underscored the consequences of overload, overuse, head impact, and other challenges that affect athletes and contribute to the ongoing prevalence of injury and detrimental effects on health. It was evident that the current gaps and future direction in Sport uniquely parallel SIVOTEC’s multi-domain, complex systems biology approach to evaluating and assessing injury risk and promoting healthy, sustainable athlete development. The conversation among these renowned leaders strongly reinforced SIVOTEC’s commitment to the rapidly emerging advances and utility of artificial intelligence-based computational learning systems via big data. No question that SIVOTEC will distinctively provide new insights to complex human systems through real-world, multi-domain predictive modeling.”
Dr. Bergeron, Senior Vice President of Development & Applications in the Center for Advanced Analytics in Sport & Health of SIVOTEC Analytics, was a presenter at the Youth Sports Safety Summit, held March 7, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This summit was hosted by the Youth Sports Safety Alliance (YSSA) and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) to educate key stakeholders about current issues in youth sports safety and effective measures to keep young athletes safe.
“It was a terrific gathering of youth sports safety leaders from across the country meeting at the beautiful NCAA Headquarters and sharing new information and emphasizing best practices. While it is critical to hold and promote the messaging from such meetings, the real work that will tangibly ensure a safe and healthy environment in youth sport and provide sustainable opportunities for a wide definition of sport success must come from those who work with our kids every day – parents, coaches, administrators, health care providers, and the sport governing bodies.”
Dr. Bergeron will be presenting next at the IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport to be held March 16-18, 2017 in Monaco.
