UBC researchers use algorithms to produce affordable cricket bat

From CBC:-
BC forestry professor Phil Evans is leading a project that uses an algorithm to design a cricket bat that’s cheaper to produce but just as powerful as the one used by professional cricketers.

Evans said his aim is to see a high-quality cricket bat in the hands of every aspiring cricketer.

“In India alone hundreds of thousands of kids play cricket and idolize cricketers, and they want a bat that resembles the one that cricketers are using,” said Evans who spoke to CBC from Australia.

“We need to use cheaper material but we don’t want to give them a bat that’s not a good one.”
