Intel is bringing AI to the Olympics

Source: Intel

Senegal, a country of about 17 million, has medaled only once at the Olympic Games — and that was back in 1988. But frequent winners like the US, the UK, and Germany might want to start looking over their shoulders.

That’s because the Senegalese National Olympic Committee, in partnership with Intel, is using AI to identify young athletes in rural areas who might have so far flown under the radar. They visited five villages across the West African country and asked 1,000 kids to participate in a series of physical challenges. AI-powered sensors then helped them identify 40 children who exhibited “significant talent.” 

An app will eventually roll out to the public so that anyone can see whether they might have a shot at becoming an Olympic superstar. Fans in Paris will get the chance to preview the app next month, and it’ll be able to tell them which sports they’d be best equipped to play.

Here’s what else Intel is working on ahead of this summer’s Paris Games:

  • An AI-powered 3-D scanner that maps out buildings in order to help athletes with visual impairments navigate through them

  • A chatbot that’s been trained to help competitors understand the International Olympic Committee’s rules and regulations (for example, an athlete can ask which medicines she’s allowed to take ahead of an event — and which ones are forbidden)

  • You’ll benefit from the initiative even if you’re just watching from your couch: With AI deep learning, Intel can now deliver 8k resolution broadcasts in real time

It’s not just Intel getting in on the AI action: NBC announced this week it will use an AI-generated version of Al Michaels’ voice to deliver daily recaps and highlights during the Games. The legendary sports broadcaster, who was a commentator during the 1980 “Miracle on Ice,” said he was at first skeptical of the idea. But he became convinced after hearing the voice for himself. “Frankly, it was astonishing,” he recently told Vanity Fair. “It was amazing.”

Americans are starting to embrace AI travel planners

AI trip planning is starting to go mainstream. Seven in 10 Americans say they’d be willing to use AI to curate a trip this year — or have already done so — while just 30% said they don’t see AI in their travel-planning future, according to a recent trends report from personal finance app MoneyLion. A fifth of younger travelers, between ages 18 and 34, say they’re already incorporating AI into their travel plans.

Just 5% of respondents said they’d used AI to plan a trip but have no plans to do so again in the future, suggesting that people who do experiment with AI for trip planning tend to find the process useful.

Why are travelers turning to AI for help? It can give more precise recommendations than a guidebook. Books of course can’t be updated or edited to accommodate your preferences. But AI-powered travel assistants like Vacay and Mindtrip can curate custom itineraries based on your budget and interests.

Maybe you want to go full-on tourist mode and hit all of the major landmarks in a particular city. Or you’d rather head out on a food crawl, visiting all the best street vendors in a neighborhood. AI platforms can help you surface options that might otherwise take hours to compile manually.

What are travelers using AI for? Right now, it’s fairly split. Fifty-six percent use it for locating restaurants, 53% for hotel recommendations, and 51% for local transportation recommendations. It means that conventional booking sites might need to start incorporating AI features if they want to stay relevant and competitive.

Some travelers say they’ve found the most success by inputting their preferences into several AI-powered travel sites, then picking and choosing from each of their responses to create one ultimate itinerary.
