Wed­ding celebs’ de­tails via AI stream

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - BACK PAGE -

WHEN Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say “I do” at their royal wed­ding next week, on­line view­ers tun­ing into the Sky News stream will not have to guess the names of celebri­ties in at­ten­dance.

The UK broad­caster will use ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence to iden­tify fa­mous guests as they make their grand en­trances at St Ge­orge’s Chapel at Wind­sor Cas­tle – dis­play­ing the in­vi­tees’ names and de­tails about how they are con­nected to the royal cou­ple us­ing cap­tions and on-screen graph­ics.

Dubbed “Who’s Who Live”, Sky News an­nounced the livestream ser­vice last week in part­ner­ship with Ama­zon.com and other firms. The royal wed­ding is ex­pected to com­mand a mas­sive global au­di­ence. – Wash­ing­ton Post
