This week YouTube TV won its very first Technology & Engineering Emmy for its AI-powered curation of sports highlights. This system allows YouTube subscribers to see custom highlights of sporting events quickly.
“Thank you to the Academy for this recognition to Google. This is YouTube TV’s first ever Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award, and we couldn’t be more proud of our team’s work on delivering Views for our members. Views is a suite of features that lets our members jump right into highlights such as key plays, stats, and scores from both the game they are watching as well as other games.” Said Kathryn Cochrane, Group Product Manager for YouTube TV.
You probably see this feature most often when yous ee an option to watch Key Plays to catch up on a game that is already in progress. Now with this AI-powered system YouTube TV in real-time can curate some of the biggest events in a game so you can see what you missed without needing to watch the full game.
This feature is currently available for baseball, basketball, football, soccer, golf, and hockey. You can access this feature both on mobile devices and on TVs.
“Our philosophy has always been that watching TV should always be easy, interactive and made for you. We couldn’t have done this without our partners — and fellow winners! — over at WSC Sports. This award is dedicated to our over 5 million members who have been on this journey with us. As we continue building the best live TV experience, we promise to keep you as our main priority. Thank you for getting us this far.” said Kathryn Cochrane.
