How AI is changing the business landscape in the entertainment industry

Article | April 1, 2020

Whether you realise it or not, we are entering a new and unprecedented age: one driven largely by artificial intelligence. Up until very recently, artificial intelligence was of a very narrow sort. Put simply, it could do certain things, like arithmetic, very well. But other things, like speech recognition and complex decision-making, were left to humans. Nowadays, computing power has reached a stage where machines can learn for themselves – and the implications are sure to be felt in every area of the economy. This includes the entertainment industry – right down to smaller studios, who, with the help of small business loans, are now able to access worlds of ai-driven power previously denied to them.

At opposite sides of the globe, two top-flight international football events have kicked off over the last week. In semi-vaccinated Europe the month-long Euro 2020 tournament began on Friday June 11th, with 11 countries hosting the competition across Europe. On Sunday June 13th in Brazil (a country which had now lost nearly half a million lives to COVID-19) the 2021 Copa America kicked off, with the final taking place on July 10th2021. While Euro 2020 is taking place in front of reduced capacity crowds of fans in stadiums, the Copa America is being played behind closed doors with entire participating national delegations required to be vaccinated, and delegations limited to 65 members.

The criteria for live spectator participation for UEFA (the event organisers) was key to this. UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin confirmed the importance of live spectators at matches in an interview back in March where he stated "We have several scenarios, but the one guarantee we can make is that the option of playing any Euro 2020 match in an empty stadium is off the table. Every host must guarantee there will be fans at their games."
