Rico Gear is taking the next step in his coaching career, teaming up to create an AI powered online training app.
Gear, who played 20 Tests for the All Blacks, is setting up an app to help players improve, but with so many training apps on the market his point of difference is using artificial intelligence.
"The artificial intelligence is going to get to the point where to show the difference between elite and beginner and everything in between."
"We will be demonstrating a number of specific drills so you get to watch that and then you'll turn the video on yourself and preform the same drill and then you upload the video to the application and that's where the artificial intelligence will monitor and measure your progress.
What we have at the moment is people putting up drills and skills online we can see but there is no way to measure or see if the player is improving cause there's no feedback what you are going to have is direct feedback with a measured approach which tells you whether or not you are getting better."
Gear who is now based on the Gold Coast as a rugby coach believes this app can help grow rugby around the world.
