AI & The Future of Panorama Judging

by Russell J C Providence

Can AI Be More Efficient Than People in the Steel Orchestra Panorama Judicial System?

Despite its widespread lack of familiarity, AI is a technology that is transforming every walk of life. It is a wide-ranging tool that enables people to rethink how we integrate information, analyze data, and use the resulting insights to improve decision making which can be applied to the lifespan of a band's panorama selection beginning with the choice of tune. Although there is no uniformly agreed upon definition, AI generally is thought to refer to “machines that respond to stimulation consistent with traditional responses from humans, given the human capacity for contemplation, judgment and intention. In the preceding context, I would substitute MACHINES with PANORAMA JUDGES.

Artificial intelligence algorithms are designed to make decisions, often using real-time data. AI systems have the ability to learn and adapt as they make decisions. AI generally is undertaken in conjunction with machine learning and data analytics.

Machine learning takes data and looks for underlying trends. Software designers can take that knowledge and use it to analyze specific issues, all that is required are data that are sufficiently robust that algorithms can discern useful patterns.

If Panorama survives in its competitive form, is it not reasonable to imagine that in the age of AI, considering the trend that has emerged over the lifetime of the competition, a formula for a winning panorama tune can be successfully mapped by employing algorithmic thinking?
