Sometimes technology fails, and this was the case for a particular AI Camera at a recent soccer game in Scotland.
The AI "automated" Camera, used to replace human camera operators at a recent soccer game in Scotland, kept mistaking the bald referee's head for the football, ruining the game for the spectators.
Instead of employing a cameraman, the teams relied on an AI-powered camera that was programmed to follow the ball throughout the match.
"ICTFC will utilise live footage supplied by the newly installed Pixellot camera system installed at Caledonian Stadium. The Pixellot system uses cameras with in-built, AI, ball-tracking technology to produce live HD footage of all home SPFL Championship matches at Caledonian Stadium," ICT had proudly announced earlier this month while making the switch to automated cameras.
Several viewers were taken aback by the camera's blunder and took to social media to complain about it.
Despite the outcome, more organizations have begun adopting artificial intelligence and imagine recognition technologies for hosting virtual "offline-to-online" events in the recent months — increasing its commercial potential.
