Do You Think Robot Referees Will Do Better Than Human? (See This)

Chelsea to become first Premier League side to play with ‘robot-refs’ to make offside decisions at Club World Cup

The system uses up to 12 cameras in the stadium roof to capture the movement of all the players and the ball.

Up to 29 data points for each player, making up an animated skeleton, can be assessed 50 times per second to ensure decisions are correct.

If an attacking player is in an offside position, the tracking system alerts the VAR operator within half a second.

That message is then sent on to the referee, who is able to blow if he agrees the attacker was interfering with play.

The new system, which has been devised with the help of a number of tech companies, will end the painful, drawn-out process of waiting for lines to be calculated and drawn on screen.

It also would stop the current instructions to assistants not to flag instantly on “tight” offsides, which has been criticised for increasing the likelihood of injuries caused by desperate defenders.

Fifa’s football technology and innovation director Johannes Holzmuller explained:

“When the ball is played, the real-time AI software can send a signal automatically to the VAR.

“We will have a committed assistant VAR who can process the offside data and help determine if the player deemed to be offside was active and interfering with play, so they can swiftly validate and confirm the decision.”

Chelsea’s first match in Abu Dhabi will be against Tahiti’s AS Pirae, Al Jazira from the host nation or Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal on February 9, with the final, probably against Brazil’s Copa Libertadores champion Palmeiras three days later.

It is obvious that robots are taking over human jobs. And the next couple of years, millions of people around the world will be jobless.
