We wanted tennis fans to experience the breadth of IBM's involvement in the tournament so we used the data it collects to create real-time videos that tell the story of each set through the data it produced. The results were shared live on Instagram less than a minute after the set's end. To get the animations out in real-time, we invented a custom algorithm and had animators, designers and writers embedded at the US Open.
