Offsides will be calculated using sensors in the ball and artificial intelligence

FIFA, the International Football Federation, has announced that it will use artificial intelligence cameras,

to help referees determine offsides at the 2022 World Cup. Discuss

The semi-automatic system consists of a sensor inthe ball, which transmits its position on the field every one five hundredth of a second, and 12 security cameras installed under the roof of the stadiums. Camera footage is fed to a machine-learning program that tracks 29 points on the players' bodies.

The software will bring everything togetherdata and issue warnings when players are offside. Alerts will be sent to officials in the nearest control room who will confirm the decision and communicate it to the referees on the field.

FIFA claims the entire process will take "a few seconds". Offside decisions can be made faster and more accurately.
