Belief Updating in the NCAA

Organisms within a dynamic system constantly adapt when factors within the system change. Keeping up with the fluid demands of student-athletes, from academia to mechanical loads, warrants the utility of dynamic modelling strategies. In our attempt to simulate these dynamical systems when optimizing athlete readiness, we utilize a probabilistic graphical model approach: Bayesian Belief Networks.
