The BBC has reached an agreement with right holder Sportradar to live telecast the semi-final and final of Badminton’s European Mixed Team Championships in Copenhagen. The matches will be shown tomorrow and day after tomorrow on the BBC Sport website and digital platforms.

The tournament started on 13 February, with defending champions Denmark facing challenges from teams like France, the Netherlands and Spain in their group.

England, seeded second, have to face Ireland, Germany and Russia in their group.

England’s Men’s Singles player and National Champion, Rajiv Ouseph, assessed their chances.

“As players, we always enjoy the European team events and go to Denmark with the strongest possible squad which, due to injury, has not always been the case in past seasons.”

“When you pull on that England shirt, you really feel the pride of playing for your country, and we’re already excited to have another opportunity as a team to show that on court in front of the fans.”

Lutz Tigges, senior director audiovisual broadcast at Sportradar said, “We are really looking forward to starting coverage of the European Badminton Mixed Team Championships in Denmark. Demand for the broadcast coverage has been really strong and being able to add the BBC to that across their digital channels is another endorsement of the event.”

Live action will also be available to a global audience through Sportradar’s digital platform for the tournament, www.laola1.tv/badmintoneurope/

Ubisoft join hands with Mozilla to create AI coding tools
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Ubisoft and Mozilla, who developed Firefox web browser, are joining hands to develop a AI-coding tool called Clever-Commit AI coding assistant. The partnership, initially signed for three years, involves exchange of ideas, techniques, and skills between the two companies in the development of Clever-Commit.

“Working with Mozilla on Clever-Commit allows us to support other programming languages and increase the overall performances of the technology,” said Mathieu Nayrolles, technical architect, data scientist, and member of the Technology Group at Ubisoft Montreal. “Using this tech in our games and in Firefox will allow developers to be more productive, as they can spend more time creating the next feature rather than fixing bugs. Ultimately, this will allow us to create even better experiences for our gamers and increase the frequency of our releases.”

This AI is being developed by the Ubisoft Technology Group, and evaluates whether or not a code change will introduce a new bug and proactively fix it by learning from past bugs and fixes. By applying Clever-Commit to both game development and Firefox development, Ubisoft and Mozilla will learn more about other programming languages and increase the knowledge of the AI’s toolbox.

Clever-Commit was first unveiled last year as a prototype (Commit-Assistant) by Ubisoft La Forge, a research branch of Ubisoft Montreal that works alongside academic institutions, in collaboration with Concordia University. In an effort to improve the overall quality of Ubisoft games, Clever-Commit learns from the development of major AAA games, and quickly identifies and fixes bugs so that teams can release more high-quality features, more frequently. To date, the AI has been able to identify if a code contains a bug with 70 per cent accuracy.
