Unusual: the AI ​​on a camera mistook a referee’s skull for a soccer ball!

This is undoubtedly proof that one shouldn’t delegate too much to a machine: recently, the staff of the Scottish team Inverness Caledonian Thistle Football Club (Phew!) Replaced your cameraman in the stands with an autonomous camera, entirely from one Machine controlled is IA. Theoretically, the camera can detect the ball and therefore follows the action in the game by placing the ball in the center of the image. But then, during the game against Ayr United (another team in the Scottish Championship), the camera preferred to follow one of the referees who was completely bald … and resembled a ball! Needless to say, the game’s airing was a memorable epic failure. As for AI, bad tongues claim it is already training to make the difference with a skull, but also a bowling ball, flat plate, etc. (CEUB: That’s a joke). Machine learning is really a poem …

Inverness Caledonian Thistle does not employ a cameraman as the camera is programmed to follow the ball throughout the game. The commentator had to apologize today when the camera kept mistaking the ball for the linesman’s head … pic.twitter.com/LeKsc2bEj7
