Masters Watson highlightsGolf fans know great shots when they see them. And now, Watson does, too.

For this year’s Masters Tournament, IBM which has a long history with the Masters as a technology partner — is making use of Watson’s Cognitive Highlights capability to find those memorable moments and spotlight them at Augusta National Golf Club and in cloud-based streaming video apps. It’s a first for sporting events.

“This year, they really wanted to take the Masters’ digital projects to a new level, so we began thinking about how we can have an immersive video experience and what would make that space even more impressive,” said John Kent, program manager for the IBM worldwide sports and entertainment partnership group. “That’s how Watson became involved.”

The Watson Cognitive Highlights technology uses factors including player gestures and crowd noise to pinpoint shots worthy of replay.
