Our Mission

Betterplay.ai is a project intended to revolutionize the way table tennis players and coaches analyze their games' videos. It is our belief that anyone, regardless of their level, can improve their game and technique by doing video analysis. Our service can also be used by clubs, leagues and broadcasters to automatically create highlight clips of table tennis matches.

Our Journey

We’ve been developing our state-of-the-art AI for more than two years and we’re excited to share it with the world. In the process we’ve collaborated with many players and coaches from around the world, including some former top ten players and World Champions. We’ve also trained our AI with tens of thousands of minutes of table tennis videos under every imaginable condition, playing level and styles and our tool yields very accurate results and is ready for wide usage.

The first step in our journey is a web-based application that does automated video editing. We have a very exciting roadmap ahead and our goal is to develop a tool that can analyze many aspects of the game and provide automated coaching and deep insights to help anyone improve their level.
