The IBM Kiosk at Wimbledon is combining in-match player statistics with social media sentiment on the competitors to provide a regularly updated leaderboard ranking the tournament’s stars. The IBM Kiosk staff then use cutting-edge 3D printers to produce a specially designed trophy for the leading player every 20 minutes. In this video, IBM Kiosk Manager Sophie Lindström and Senior 3D Printing Technician Dave Marks explain how the system works, and show us some of the trophies that have been created in the tournament so far. We also interview Wimbledon fans as they visit The IBM Kiosk to see how the data provided at the tournament enhances their enjoyment, and how the trophies physically illustrate the fast and accurate data produced by IBM.
