Abstract: The selection of talent for sports has always been of great concern. The research interest in the domain of computational decision-making for sports talent identification is on an increasing curve. The conventional approaches are being modelled into the scientific models using various analytical and mathematical computational techniques. This paper reviews some of the talent identification models and aims to project the current perspective of the computational techniques being employed in sports talent identification (TiD). Articles from a timeframe of 1995-2020 were systematically selected in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. We remain focused on the computational methodology being employed in the TiD models. The review delivers the findings and highlights some of the inherent issues that are not being addressed by the existing TiD models.
Keywords: sports talent identification; applied soft computing; multi-criteria decision making; MCDM; sports talent computation.
