  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


AI on the football field.. Artificial Intelligence

With ChatGPT (the latest open source AI educational app) causing rumblings in educational circles you have to wonder how long until AI enters sport.

My guess is that it is probably already used to some degree in NFL to predict the success probability of particular plays.

Could it have application in Australian rules to predict trends in say centre bounces. I don't know if AI can interpret video yet but imagine if it could.

For those who follow these things, humans lost the ability to beat computers at chess in around 2006 and even now you can download programs to your phone that will beat any human.

AI will really kick in as a genuinely useful thing when it begins to be used to support 'mutual best outcome' estimation in things like trade week.

Not so much that it is cleverer or philosophically deep, but an AI would have the capacity to look at all clubs objectives simultaneously without getting a ripping headache, and without personally caring which club looked like they were 'doing best'.

Actually, that second part is an aspect of why Melbourne have pick-traded so effectively in the last few years - caring a lot less about who 'won' and just being interested in 'did we gain?'

Okay, I'll come clean - there's a thing my older brother (Yes, that would be, 'Big Goffy') was involved in and it is freak'n awesome. You'll need your nerd hat on:

Thanks LG that is very interesting, sometime ago I had training and some experience in negotiations. A tool like this could be very valuable in the future. I sometimes struggled with all the permutations and found the most difficult things to overcome were peoples stubborn and often mistaken belief in their own opinions. We have a lot to thank the Greeks for but the adversarial  method of debate means there is a winner and a loser. Often a better outcome can be achieved through a more cooperative approach.

Having been involved in negotiations for a fair while your premise makes sense.

I used to call it the "grieving period" in the sense that participants needed to replace their anger with a sense of compromise. Unfortunately we are taught to "maintain the rage."

On the other hand compromise leads to a maintenance of the status quo which is perhaps more harmful in many instances.

Now back to the subject... Palace Dees tell us more about the backgammon app you beat. I would have thought it's a mathematical equation like checkers

Was taught to stay away from "compromise", always a better negotiated outcome where all the parties felt they got something. The classic trying for a "win win". Part of the art is finding what's hidden and what's really important. One of the keys is discovering what are the needs of the other side and acknowledging them. This is where some AI help would be really beneficial a bit like picking up a "tell" from a poker player.

I wonder whether AI would help with score reviews?

(This is not a joke. I suspect AI can identify trajectory changes in ball movement better than the human eye.)

Can't see AI ever being of use on-field in match conditions.

Imagine having to make a decision that took into account the full range of possible movements and reactions of 36 disparate players without 360 degree vision and mind reading technology. Will never be able to match humans.

Many of the recent rule changes seem to have been made by people with no intelligence, natural or artificial.

As a teacher I'm pushing staff to adopt the capability of ChatGPT as a tool.  it's brilliant even with its current shortcoming's in terms of knowledge and ability to process. I can produce new resources and check existing one's very quickly.  

The area of AI it is still considered that humans have to final say in what is produce or acted upon, as systems even AI at this stage only produce what we tell it to produce.  They are taught to look for patterns and act upon them.  This is evident in ChatGPT responses.   

So I would say existing data science techniques with staff over sight will be the norm for a while longer as the datasets.  With experience and knowledge we can see patterns without within the AFL context without needing to rely on AI systems.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
