The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.comAmazon Prime Video took a different approach during the offseason as it looked to improve its coverage of “Thursday Night Football.”

While most networks review the film, go to college, or seek input from teams on different ways to broadcast games, Prime Video’s production, tech, and engineering teams visited Tel Aviv to meet with Prime Video’s Computer Vision Machine Learning team.

The goal was to find ways to help fans understand and enjoy football better.

Defensive alerts are an AI-powered feature that will identify players in real-time with the best odds of rushing the quarterback. It tracks player movements before the snap.

Tracking for all players is done by RFID chips in their shoulder pads.

Welcome to Thursday Night Football, AI style.
