AI helps Liverpool score from a corner


By: Manu Tournoux

This season, Liverpool is present on all fronts. The Reds are in the race to win the Premier League and the Europa League, having already won the Carabao Cup. If Jürgen Klopp's men are performing well, it's because he has put in all the necessary ingredients to get to this stage.

Indeed, the Mersey club and the Google company DeepMind have worked together on the development of an AI capable of developing tactical diagrams, called TacticAI. This analyzes the behavior of players in a corner situation. This artificial intelligence is there “to advise coaches on corners”, not to take the place of the coach, as Google assures. TacticAI can predict which player can complete the action according to a given tactic. An effective choice?
