Artificial Intelligence brings Wimbledon highlights to TV Viewers
A recent edition of the science and technology program “Details” reports on how artificial intelligence technology was used to enhance TV viewers’ experience of this summer’s Wimbledon tennis championships. Journalist Andrey Derkach turned to Fulton Schools Professor Subbarao Kamphampati for AI expertise. Kamphampati explained how an AI-powered system implemented by IBM analyzed video footage to produce a highlights report for various media platforms. He says the way the system selected what to feature exhibited a bias due to the quirks of crowd reactions influenced by the popularity of certain players. The report begins several seconds past the 12:30 mark in the video. The program was first aired on July 1 and then archived on its website.
