AI camera mistakes referee’s bald head for football
In a case of mistaken identity, an artificial Intelligence camera kept focusing on the bald head of a referee instead of the football. The freak incident happened in Scotland, where Artificial Intelligence camera was incorporated to live telecast the match. However, the whole excitement of viewing a football match was ruined when the camera focussed on the bald head of the referee. Sometimes the football was entirely out of the camera frame prompting the commentator to apologize many times. The incident once again proves human intelligence is inimitable.
Time Capsule travels just two years after being deposited in the artic
Proving the fact that Climate Change is a reality, a time capsule, buried by tourists in the arctic in 2018, travelled at least 25 times faster than expected. The capsule, shaped like a cylindrical tin, contained a letter, beer corks, and pictures placed in ice floe by tourists travelling by ship 50 years of victory. Two surfers, Conor McClory and Sophie Curran found the capsule on the shores of Bloody Foreland. Initially, they thought it was a bomb or an ash urn, but luckily a friend translated the writings in Russian and they opened the tube. One of the letters was traced back to a blogger, Sveta, in Russia. When McClory contacted her she expressed surprise at the time capsule being found so soon, as they were expecting it to be found 30 to 50 years later. The incident shows the urgency required in implementing rapid climate actions.
