While artificial intelligence has been able to successfully create a realistic simulation of Wimbledon matches, it seems to have more problems with soccer.
At least, that was the case with a recent match with the Scottish soccer team Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC. With the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in games without a hearing, the Inverness Caledonian Thistle has since been using an automatic camera system with “built-in AI ball-tracking technology” to track the action.
However, it did not go as planned in the team’s late October game against Ayr United. For much of the game, the camera looked away from the ball and looked at the linesman, who had a shiny bald spot. Obviously, he was mixing the two round and similarly sized subjects.
Someone hilariously even made a montage of the camera mistakes to the tune of Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy.”

Clearly, the AI model needs a bit more work.
