MEET The Emirates Team AI Bot
The reigning champions of The America’s Cup, the oldest event trophy in today’s sports, are always looking to benefit from cutting edge innovation to secure their title. This year they did it with the help of McKinsey to create a new AI bot that would help simulate the perfect boat design. Typically, a team like this would need to prototype a new boat design, build it, and get all team members on board to practice with it – a logistical nightmare. However, with the help of this new AI, a simulator is now able to construct and test thousands of designs to come up with the ideal boat to build. Championship teams no longer have to waste time testing and can now spend that time winning.
