In case you missed it: excerpts from the live stream of a recent SPFL Championship match (in an empty stadium on account of lockdown) between Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ayr United.

Caledonian stadium has no camera operator, relying instead on an AI controlled tracking camera programmed to follow the ball.

Except it’s not following the ball is it?

behold the Toyota concept-i vehicle, recently premiered at CES 2017. A kind of ‘touchy-feelicle’, built around a powerful AI system (called ‘yui’) designed to ‘build a relationship’ with the human user. The concept-i also has  automated safety systems along with ‘visual and touch-based stimuli’ to match driver responsiveness.

Eww.
