lunes 21 de noviembre de 2022 | 6:00 a.m.

For the first time in history, a country in the Middle East, Qatar, is home to the highest football competition: the World Cup.

From November 20 to December 18, fans from all over the world will meet in Qatar, a country characterized by strict norms.

With the aim of guaranteeing the security of the visitors, for this World Cup, the country will have a technological center in which it will use artificial intelligence to supervise and control the activities of the fans in each of the parties. This will allow a better organization in an event that brings together millions of fans.

The point will be located in Doha, the capital of the host country, and will operate 24 hours a day, with around 100 technicians working to monitor what is happening to the more than 1.2 million fans who are waiting for El Mundial.

Para el monitoreo las authorities have disposed screens through 200 mil integrated units, así como de 22 mil security cameras distributed in los ocho estadios que serán sede.

From there they can monitor the entry of the fans to operate the doors, make sure there is water and maintain the air conditioning of the different stages, because during this time of the year they expect temperatures between 25 and 28 degrees centigrade, although for the inauguration se prevé que esté sobre los 30 grados este domingo 20 de noviembre.

Along with this, there will be a facial recognition system to see the face of each of the 80,000 fans who attend the Iconic Stadium of Lusail, for example, where the final of the tournament will be played on December 18.

The persons who will be operating this control center will be experts in cyber security, anti-terrorism and transport, together with the officials of Qatar and FIFA.

Journalist víctima de un robo
Installed in the Qatari soil, the journalist Dominique Metzger shared his story about suffering the robbery of his wallet en plena nota.

“Me abacan de robar la billetera cuando estábamos haciendo la salida en vivo. Esta es la Policía y me mandaron acá a hacer la denunciation porque aseguran que está todo vigilado y que la van a concontrar la billetera que tenía los documentos, plata, las tarjetas, que obviously es lo que más me preoccupa. Lo otro no me importa nada”, said the conductor of TN.

Durante el relato highlighted the tranquility of the uniformed men, who guaranteed that through technology, tanto el ladrón como su billetera iban a ser encontragos: “’¿Qué querés que haga la justicia con esto? Porque nosotros lo vamos a encontrar, hay cámaras de alta definición por todos lados’. Y yo pensé que había entendido mal por la traduction, pero no: insistían por preguntarme qué pena quería para el ladrón, si quería que lo condenarán a 5 años de cárcel, si quería que lo deportaran”, he continued.

TikTok will broadcast the matches of the World Cup from the app

ByteDance, the company that owns TikTok, has acquired the rights to broadcast the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The company confirmed that they will broadcast the games for free and with 4K resolution. La cobertura será completa y abarca los 64 parties durante los 28 días que dura la celebration. The negative part of this is that the service will only be enabled for Chinese users of TikTok.

Hasta el momento, people from other parts of the world will not be able to enjoy this special promotion. To access the live games, you only need to type “Copa del Mundo” in the browser.

Spotify suma video podcasts a su app
