AI is Changing How You Watch Sports
The Age of AI Series – a podcast with Sanpram.
In this episode of the Age of AI Series Aman Y. Agarwal and Anri Kivimäki are talking about how machine learning is transforming sports broadcasting!
When you watch a live football game, the feed is usually coming from dozens of cameras all over the place, and being produced by a TV crew of hundreds of people. There’s a lot of real-time decision-making about which camera’s feed the viewer should be looking at at any given time.
AI is changing how you watch sports and it turns out, we can use machine learning to detect the most important events in the game from ALL camera feeds, and make very good video-cutting suggestions to the production team within just a few seconds. Not only does it save effort, it also improves the viewer’s experience.
AISpotter enables professionals to turn massive amounts of recorded and streamed video into usable and shareable information that helps them make better decisions, delight fans, and even predict the future.
The technology pinpoints the most important parts of any recorded and even multiple simultaneous live-streamed videos, from any camera, with any setup, and makes production-ready highlights available instantly.
AISpotter was founded in 2018 when a university vision AI project was first used to help sports teams quickly get the best information from game videos. Now the company helps production people, 24/7 live streams, coaches, and even security firms across Europe to process video into usable knowledge and insights.
