How sports and movie commentaries can speed up the development of artificial intelligence

A small team of Indian researchers have leveraged the country’s love of the national sport to consider how cricket commentaries could teach neural networks to understand what’s actually happening in a cricket match. One of the core challenges that recurs in current scientific research using neural networks is the extent to which computers can usefully learn on their own. It’s a subject that crops up frequently in research around self-driving vehicle AIs, which still rely on manually tagged or annotated databases, yet which need to learn to interpret information in a meaningful and useful way, in real time. In the field of image recognition, and most specifically in video recognition, manual mark-up and annotation is labour-intensive and prone to produce deceptive results. However a growing number of researchers are beginning…
