What is Artemis?

Category: FAQs

Artemis is the 3rd generation of our AI / ML training engine for runners. Named after the Greek Goddess of the Hunt, the twin sister of Apollo, and one of the Twelve Olympians gods who live on Mount Olympus. She represents strength, independence and a protector.

Artemis is based on a much larger dataset, and a greater number of ‘AI features’ to calculate the most efficient and optimised plan for your personal needs.

In the current phase of its release the primary noticeable difference is pace differences, which are also more dynamic, i.e. change more frequently.

A summary of Artemis:

  • Improved pace specifications.
  • The unique option to train for a desired race time.
    • This is enabled for each race, as part of their entry.
    • This may result in an elevated injury risk, though the system will curtail the plan to prevent this becoming excessive.
    • This option is not recommended for novice runners.
  • No requirement for assessment runs.
    • Currently assessment runs continue to be scheduled in a similar manner to before.
    • The ability to ‘opt out’ of assessment runs or reduce their frequency is on the way.
  • Significantly better at coping with data errors.
    • This is especially the case for recording errors during assessments or races that previously could result in plan abnormalities.
  • Improved ramp-on
    • For new runners and people returning to running following a break, Artemis is quicker (i.e. takes less ‘new runs’) to produce a highly optimised plan.
  • Ability to manually override paces.
    • This is configurable at the pace type level (e.g. warmup, easy, threshold, interval), along with settings to control when overrides take effect and how to revert back to the system paces.
    • Presently this is accessible via the Training Settings page, but we are looking to move it to a separate menu item under the main Settings menu in the near future.
  • Race predictions.
    • (This feature is in the process of being released to Artemis users.)
    • A small selection of traditional and our own unique AI-based predictions will be available.
    • TrinAsONE’s AI-based race prediction is indicative until the day before your race (following your last training run).
    • Indicative times may significantly fluctuate from day to day and should not be used as a firm benchmark of training progress or final prediction.
