Skillcorner develop models for football analytics and deliver to large clubs such as FC Liverpool. They needed to outperform their models for various types of object detection and required high volume of annotation on football game videos.
Ingedata assigned a team of annotators with knowledge in football. Landmark positioning and player recognition activities were performed to track the players, the referees and the balls movements. Additional tasks were added, where annotators were trained at recognizing specific players based on jersey number and face recognition.
