IBM Watson to Provide Enhanced AI-powered Automated Video Highlights For Wimbledon Fans

From IBM:

As a learning system, Watson has been taught to better recognise acoustics and understand inadvertent bias increasing the quality of the output. With sound analysis from Watson Acoustics, the system can now recognise when the ball has been struck, allowing a tighter cropping of highlight clips saving vital time and maximising every second of rights footage.

Using Watson Open Scale, the system can now recognise levels of noise and excitement levels of players, allowing it to remove bias when searching for highlights from players with a particularly vocal following or those who are particularly animated on court.
