Edj History

In 2001, Indiana University astrophysicist Chuck Bower and world backgammon champion Frank Frigo recognized that neural net programs had already surpassed the best humans in skilled board games. They began exploring how computer simulation models could aid NFL coaches in critical play-calling decisions.

Enter Zeus. This computer model shook the conventional wisdom of NFL coaches – particularly on intra-game risk management decisions. Where other models focused on the expected points of generic teams, Zeus was assessing the win probability of accurately customized opponents. The revolutionary program caught the attention of sports media, NFL coaches, analysts and owners.

It didn’t take long to realize the lessons learned on the gridiron could be applied to a host of other applications. In 2013, Chuck and Frank partnered with Sean O’Leary, former CEO/Co-Founder of Genscape, and EdjAnalytics was born.
