We were lucky enough to have an event at this year’s British Science Festival in Bradford regarding the role of science and technology in sport. The event took the form of a debate, with our own Professor Haake arguing for technology, and Philosopher Dr Jim Parry presenting arguments against. Both gave fascinating talks which raised a lot of questions and debate. I recorded both speakers so others could listen to the arguments, find the videos below. Of course it wouldn’t be a debate unless we asked the opinion of the audience, so I have copied some of the questions into polls below, it would be fantastic if you could respond with your opinions on the subtleties of technology in sport and what you think is acceptable. Did either speaker sway your decisions? Who do you agree with? What are your thoughts? It would be great if you could leave a comment.
