WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

AI in Football
Having noticed AI being talked about in the media a lot recently I wondered how it could be used to improve a football team’s performance. Managers use data and game analysis so surely using AI is just the next step.

I presume it could gather data on both the users team and the team they are playing and use cameras to analyse live action and make informed decisions on the starting 11, formation, tactics, substitutions etc.

The team manager would just implement instructions from AI.

Could AI be the perfect manager?

Chatgpt takes its info from the web.

It's intelligence turns GIGO into GILGO.

Garbage In, Less Garbage Out.

It's still far from GINGO. (N for No).

Although it does a better job than GO

Exactly what I am saying. Would AI have looked at our situation in January and decided that Danny Ings was the what we needed?

Re: AI in Football
You wouldn't train the AI on a particular manager's style, you just provide it with the data and let it come to the decision of what it thinks is the optimal strategy. I reckon it would need at least ten mins of football before it's better than Moyes.

Probably be really useful for scouting and player recruitment.

Liverpool and a few other clubs have already started.

Liverpool have joined forces with DeepMind to explore the use of artificial intelligence in the football world.
The two groups got together to discuss where AI might be able to help football players and coaches. Liverpool also provided DeepMind with data on every Premier League game the club played between 2017 and 2019.

Exactly my point. How much data would AI need before it can make better decisions than Moyes? Plus it self trains so wouldn’t keep repeating the same mistakes.

Forget offside & VAR, I’m talking about managerial decisions like team selection & tactics.

Re: AI in Football
Who would "train" the AI? Whose neural networks would you map to provide decisioning? Alf Ramsey? Pep? All manager of all time? Some elements of football are so subjective and dependent on human error that currently it would fail, Nearer the singularity it might work. With binary decisions such as offside etc then it would perform better than that shower of shite in Stockley Park right now.

Re: AI in Football
Is there an AI algorithm that can tell Moyes to fuck off and take his place?

Re: AI in Football
Could be used for Off-side VAR calls. But you would obviously need two distinct algorithms...

Interesting question. Sounds like something Brentford would do.
