Using AI to determine highlights at Wimbledon

This year the highlights you see from Wimbledon on social media, the web and sports apps might not have been carefully trimmed and edited by a human. IBM's question answering AI "Watson" will be used to determine match highlights from the players emotions and gestures as well as other factors such as crowd noise and match interest online. With this system in place IBM aim to have highlight reels ready for release 5-10 minutes after a match finishes. Don't worry though all of the content produced will be checked by a human before being published, the main aim is to free the professional editors up to do the creative part of the editing rather than the laborious trimming of clips.
