AI camera follows referee's bald head through a match, mistaken it for a ball 97

An AI camera used to replace humans at a soccer game in Scotland has mistaken the bald referee’s head for the ball, and followed it throughout the match.

This happened when Inverness Caledonian Thistle played Ayr United on Saturday at the Caledonian Stadium.

Due to COVID-19, the Inverness club decided to refrain from using human camera operators, and instead rely on an automated camera system to follow the action, which unfortunately failed.

Videos regarding this incident has gone viral on the internet
