In recent years, artificial intelligence technology has developed rapidly and is no longer limited to the interdisciplinary integration of information and traditional engineering majors. There have also been relatively successful application achievements in fields such as humanities and social sciences, and of course, in the field of sports is no exception. The integration of sports and artificial intelligence disciplines usually refers to the use of technologies related to artificial intelligence as a means, reflected in the perception, induction, analysis, and decision-making process of sports data. The final goal is to reveal the laws of human movement, evaluate the effectiveness of sports performance, and develop equipment to assist in sports training, in order to enhance the scientific and healthy nature of sports. This article takes the integration of artificial intelligence and sports as the starting point, and introduces the application cases of artificial intelligence related technologies in the field of sports through literature review, logical analysis, and other methods. Introduced the current situation of professional talent cultivation and industry exchanges in China. Finally, a summary and suggestions were provided.
