New research shows that soccer players are four times more likely to be diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease. The highest risk is among defenders, who are five times more likely to suffer from dementia than those who are not footballers. In the study, conducted by the University of Glasgow, the medical records of 7,676 Scottish footballers were compared, and found that the risk increased with the length of their careers. "With the current data, we are at the point of suggesting that the soccer ball should be sold with a health warning saying that repeated soccer practice may lead to an increased risk of dementia," explains Willie Stewart, professor who led the study. . "The data in this work is the missing link in trying to understand this connection between sport and dementia ......

Robot camera mistakes the ball for a referee’s head | Digital Trends Spanish

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is called to change our lives and its use is already well advanced in different areas, although it is still necessary for its implementation to be perfect.

It is likely that the glow coming from the assistant's head confused the camera and caused it to interpret that this ...
