Making referee's job easier

Good to see that technology is helping more and more in sports and making referee's life easier. It is sometimes very difficult to judge if the ball has cross the line when it is in the air (e.g. when is corner kick is taken, players could disrupt referee's view from the sideline). Again I am not sure how a human could detect if the ball has crossed the line by 1.5cm...seems difficult to me. It would be interesting to watch Hawk-Eye system working in the coming mega tournament...I am sure there would be many such cases where the help of this technology would be useful.

Wonderful work to hopefully resolve many confusing judgements. Will this technology also be employed to prevent goal like that of Maradona by hand?

Player orientation will be very important so as not to dissapoint them. They should also add more microphones to each player so the fight like that of Zidane can be prevented, which cost France Coupe du Monde.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
