Prediction of Volleyball Competition Using Machine Learning and Edge Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Data analysis and machine learning are the backbones of the current era. Human society has entered machine learning and data science that increases the data capacity. It has been widely acknowledged that not only does the number of information increase exponentially, but also the way of human information management and processing is completed to be changed from manual to computer, mainly depending on the transformation of information technology including a computer, network, and communication. This paper is aimed at a solution to the lag of the methods and means of volleyball technique prediction in China. Through field visits, it is found that the way of analysis and research of techniques and tactics in Chinese volleyball practice is relatively backward, which to a certain extent affected the rapid development of Chinese volleyball. Therefore, it is a necessary and urgent task to realize the reform of the methods and means of volleyball technical and tactical analysis in China. The data analysis and prediction are based on the machine learning and data mining algorithm applied to volleyball in this paper is an inevitable trend. The proposed model is applied to the data produced at the edges of the systems and thoroughly analyzed. The Apriori algorithm of the machine learning algorithm is utilized to process the data and provide a prediction about the strategies of a volleyball match. The Apriori algorithm of machine learning is also optimized to perform better data analysis. The effectiveness of the proposed model is also highlighted.


Cult classic movie 'Turbo Kid' is getting a video game adaptation

Engadget

Turbo Kid is a charming, ultra-violent homage to Saturday morning cartoons that takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of 1997. It's one of my favorite movies of the last decade, so the announcement that a game based on the film is on the way has made my week. You'll play as The Kid, who battles his way across the wasteland as he searches for a friend. Developer Outerminds (best known for making YouTuber PewDiePie's games) says Turbo Kid is a Metroidvania with large and diverse environments, rad BMX tricks and a heartwarming story. The game has a pixel art style and promises copious low-res gore.


Neural Network: How it works and its industry use cases

#artificialintelligence

Neural networks are a series of algorithms that mimic the operations of a human brain to recognize relationships between vast amounts of data. They are used in a variety of applications in financial services, from forecasting and marketing research to fraud detection and risk assessment. A neural network has many layers. Each layer performs a specific function, and the complex the network is, the more the layers are. That's why a neural network is also called a multi-layer perceptron.


Intel, EXOS Pilot 3D Athlete Tracking with Pro Football Hopefuls

#artificialintelligence

What's New: EXOS, a leader in the field of advancing human performance, is piloting Intel's 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT) technology in training aspiring professional athletes to reach their peak performance. As pro days loom, these athletes seek to take their game to the next level with 3DAT by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to gain actionable insights about their velocity, acceleration and biomechanics when sprinting. This press release features multimedia. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton works as a product development engineer in Intel's Olympic Technology Group. "There's a massive gap in the sports and movement field, between what people feel when they move and what they actually know that they're doing," says Eaton, who won gold medals in the decathlon.


Ubisoft's Valhalla Is Too Long, Too Big, and Too Repetitive

WIRED

Tempted by the promise of an epic Viking saga for the ages, a wave of positive reviews, and a need for something new to play on my PlayStation 5 (sorry), I bought Assassin's Creed Valhalla. It's an enormous open-world action RPG that casts you as Eivor of the Raven Clan, on a mission to conquer England during the Dark Ages. The snowy mountains and sparse settlements of Norway serve as an ideal tutorial environment. By the time you load up the longship to settle in a beautifully realized and atmospheric Anglo-Saxon England, you feel like a real Viking raider. The forests of England are teeming with wildlife, and the towns are peppered with Roman ruins.


The shady ways Myers-Briggs and AI are used in corporate hiring

#artificialintelligence

Say you're a job-seeker who's got a pretty good idea of what employers want to hear. Like many companies these days, your potential new workplace will give you a personality test as part of the hiring process. You plan to give answers that show you're enthusiastic, a hard worker and a real people person. Then they put you on camera while you take the test verbally, and you frown slightly during one of your answers, and their facial-analysis program decides you're "difficult." This is just one of many problems with the increasing use of artificial intelligence in hiring, contends the new documentary "Persona: The Dark Truth Behind Personality Tests," premiering Thursday on HBO Max. The film, from director Tim Travers Hawkins, begins with the origins of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test.


Study warns deepfakes can fool facial recognition

#artificialintelligence

Deepfakes, or AI-generated videos that take a person in an existing video and replace them with someone else's likeness, are multiplying at an accelerating rate. According to startup Deeptrace, the number of deepfakes on the web increased 330% from October 2019 to June 2020, reaching over 50,000 at their peak. That's troubling not only because these fakes might be used to sway opinion during an election or implicate a person in a crime, but because they've already been abused to generate pornographic material of actors and defraud a major energy producer. Open source tools make it possible for anyone with images of a victim to create a convincing deepfake, and a new study suggests that deepfake-generating techniques have reached the point where they can reliably fool commercial facial recognition services. In a paper published on the preprint server Arxiv.org,
