Now DeepMind is using AI to transform football - Wired UK
Now, defending Premier League champions Liverpool have joined forces with DeepMind to explore the use of artificial intelligence in the football world. A paper by researchers at the two organisations, published today by the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research, outlines some of the potential applications.
“The timing is just right,” says Karl Tuyls, an AI researcher at DeepMind and one of the lead authors on the paper. DeepMind's collaboration at Liverpool arose from his previous role at the city's university (DeepMind founder Demis Hassabis is also a lifelong Liverpool fan and was an advisor on the research). The two groups got together to discuss where AI might be able to help football players and coaches.
