Arccos Golf today announced the debut of its next-generation artificial intelligence platform, Arccos Caddie 2.0, for the Android platform. Powered by Microsoft Azure, Arccos Caddie 2.0 provides players with strategies for every shot on any hole in the world. Previously a premium feature, Arccos Caddie 2.0 is now free for all users of Arccos' system.
Arccos boasts the richest dataset in golf, including over 100 million shots hit during 1 million+ rounds played by the Arccos community and 418 million GPS mapping data points on 40,000+ courses worldwide. After a series of hackfests and other collaborations, these vast resources were harnessed by Arccos engineers and Microsoft’s world class A.I. scientists. The result is a major development of Arccos Caddie’s capabilities and an expansion to the Android platform.
“The entire sports landscape is being revolutionized by advanced analytics, and golf is the most ideal sport for the application of these concepts,” said Sal Syed, Arccos CEO and Co-Founder. “Working with Microsoft, we’re plugging into a very traditional framework – the caddie/player relationship – and taking it to the next level through the power of A.I. Considering only 3% of golfers today have access to advice from a human caddie, we’re also helping democratize the caddie experience by making it available to anyone. With Arccos Caddie 2.0 now on Android, even more golfers can leverage the full power of data and AI to play their best golf.”
