    Complex app using ML: github.com/Jabrils/Uncle-Rober-Baseball-Predictor

    CORRECTION: I said in ad portion of the video that my data could be stolen on unprotected WiFi. This is true but in the example I gave with RUclip which uses HTTPS it’s already encrypted. Sorry. Didn’t know that’s how it worked. I will correct that in any future ads with Nord.

    Summary: I wanted to see if I could make an app that could decode baseball signs. Turns out we could and it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about Machine Learning and neural networks and artificial intelligence from my friend Jabril.

    Anyone help, I want to make an app that uses Player Ball Kick velocity Inputs and Goalkeeper velocity Inputs to shade an area around the pitch where it is most suitable for the player to kick for a goal. Someone tell me where to start

                                                  If every time you do the indicator, the indicator of the next sign becomes the last body part you touched on the current sign the ml program would not be able to work it out as the algorithm described has no memory.
