Another top showing. Highlights from Dublin v Donegal  (eir sport), mayo v Galway  (tg4) and kildare v Tyrone  (tg4) and bizarrely Armagh v longford in div3 was only "new" footage. 3 Div 2 games ignored again. Pathetic. Next time I'm not going to watch.

I had a feeling that was going to happen when the Monaghan/Kerry game was called off. Probably just sent the camera crew to the nearest ground.

Easytiger will probably be along soon to put me right!

I enjoyed the digs between Cavanagh and O'Shea. Didn't agree on much.

And they had highlights of the Armagh match because of the cameras that are installed in the Athletic grounds that are used for Armagh TV.
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

It would seem that we (i.e. county boards, gaa and most of all those horrible c***ts at RTE) have now become guilty of not fully embracing as yet unavailable technology, to record dismal highlights of natches that nobody much really wants.

Syf why not just jump beyond automated cameraman, and devise a payment gateway to rent a share of someoneís eyes from people who are at the match? Because all Iím getting from this thread is that everyone wants something different.

Don't be giving him ideas.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

The irony is heís basically describing a subscription version of Google Glass, which is a five year old product. Elon Musk sent a car to Mars last week and some here think automated camera systems are outlandish..

So I could watch a match through your eyes and listen to the commentary through your ears with the technology available to us now?
What an age we live in.

Automated cameras are already used all over the world, but usually in much slower moving enviroments than live sporting events and under the supervision of camera operators and directors (it's a manpower thing, allows one man control more than one cam)
What you were suggesting was cameras with AI, which would cut out operators altogether. That is decades away, especially in the context of live sporting events.
The ignorance being displayed here is quite breathtaking, especially from people who are claiming knowledge of techology.
And finally, elon musk didn't send a car to mars. If it actually lands safely on the planet than you can say that, rather than being catapulted into space as a demonstration of Falcon Heavy's load capacity.
No doubt though, if it does land on the Red Planet, some here will be demanding that the dummy at the wheel send back coverage of any local junior B club games taking place there.

It looks like Tomas O'Shea actually isn't taking the time to watch some of the games that he's reflecting on and just reverts to cliche'd diatribe to get through his slot.  Disappointing.  Man, these TV licenses kill me...

The ignorance is thinking itís multiple decades away. Iím sorry if you canít see it from your industry but as someone who has a working knowledge of AI (and image recognition software, as it happens) itís pretty clear youíre going to be utterly amazed by whatís possible in 2028, nevermind 2038. AI is basically about feeding parameters into datasets, what to do when x happens, what not to do when y happens. The more data, the better the AI solutions will become.

Self-driving cars, automated cameras, trams, drone delivery, personal assistants, it will all start accelerating at an incredible pace because the underlying logic can be repurposed in a lot of ways. Trust me when I say that there are trillions and not billions in play with AI and IoT devices and what industries they will disrupt. Broadcasting is a speck dust in the wider context and it is one of the least immune to it if Iím being frank. Everyone thinks their job canít be automated until the moment it is. That to me is the arrogance in all this. Same story since beginning the industrial revolution.

Let us just recap your ignorance

You suggested AI cameras were viable solutions for broadcasting now- i work in broadcasting- they are not

You suggested that a lack of an online repository of multiple club and intercounty games ( up the the thousands) is merely a result of ignorance and technophobia on the part of the broadcast industry in ireland, an industry you have never worked in - i do and it's not- it is a function of cost issues, scheduling issues and rights issues

Your continued suggestion that match coverage will be fully automated shows me that you have never set foot in an OB truck in your life, and have no concept of how that process actually works- if you did you would realise on site editorial decisions shape the coverage you watch today far more than technology and how technology has to be tailored to the subject being covered ( for reference you should look up some of the factors behind the failure of live 3d coverage of sports events during the last decade)

You also think elon musk sent a car to Mars

And whenever the inconsistencies in your arguments are pointed out, you change the subject and propose something else equally outlandish

I may not know the amount currently being invested in AI but i know this- if it looks like a spoofer, talks like a spoofer, sounds like a spoofer- it's a spoofer.

My only hope is that the silicon valley demigods you put so much faith in, might actually research the speck like industry you are saying they are going to disrupt, and come up with solutions that actually make sense when they do. Unlike yourself.
