This is the result of the excellent partnership we had this year with Dell Technologies, which brought in BOSS AI and a successful pilot run with the team which paves the way for next year’s project. I take this opportunity to thank Russ Loignon from BOSS AI, Mei Zhou from Dell and my right-hand man and American Racing technical director, Matthieu Grodecoeur, who will lead the project.

We are very excited to bring AI and machine learning to the racing world. With our unique federated machine learning solution, we can process data at the edge, which is the perfect solution to improve race results.

Matthieu Grodecoeur, American Racing Team Technical Director –
We are very happy to start this new chapter with BOSS AI. In 2022, we worked on a predictive tire pressure model, which turned out to be very promising. Achieving larger-scale collaboration will open the doors to solutions for all other aspects of bike setup. As an engineer, I always look for marginal gains and use the latest cutting-edge technologies. With the bikes in Moto2 being so similar and a mere 0.1 second making all the difference in this class, this is a huge opportunity to improve our overall package and help our riders reach their full potential.
