AI-curated highlights coming to Wimbledon 2017

While you’re eyes are locked in on a match on Centre Court at Wimbledon this year, something else will be watching you, too.

After testing the concept at the 2017 Masters golf tournament in April, IBM is taking the AI-powered system to tennis to create “cognitive highlight” reels based on the most exciting moments and shots in the matches each day.
