FIFA Will Use AI to Track Players’ Bodies to Make Offside Calls at 2022 World Cup

FIFA has announced it will use AI-powered cameras to help referees make offside calls at the 2022 World Cup which will take place in Qatar.

The semi-automated system consists of a sensor in the ball that relays its position on the field 500 times a second, and 12 tracking cameras mounted underneath the roof of stadiums, which use machine learning to track 29 points in players’ bodies.
