Re: a better test for big data
I agree. Some of this stuff is so ridiculous that you really need to crack down on it to stop it. The World Cup was good but there was a lot of strange stuff going on that were beyond unsportsmanlike.

I think they need to come down on him even harder, since he is a repeat offender and all...

I agree. They probably gave the guy the benefit of the doubt...who would have thought he would bite someone...AGAIN!

And let's not forget to program in some personality. All the great athletes have a distincitve personality. In the case of the soccer players, also program in diving and crying.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
I don't think they would need to change the rules, but yes until AI improved greatly it would be a matter of who has the best software and hardware.  Kind of like a sports based arms race. I think making it competitive and putting money on the line would be a great way to speed up robot development.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
That would mean that you would have to change the rules of sport they are playing. Robots would also be only as good as the software that programned them. Unless of course AI has really progressed!

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
Being an American and not really following soccer/FIFA I couldn't tell you the name of a single player but now I can tell you who the goalie was and give you the names of a couple players who were more active during the two matches I watched.   I couldn't tell you about the less active players though because I wasn't paying much attention to them, kind of how I think robot players would work.  Robot players would most likely do a lot of load sharing and not rely much on a single position.

Re: a better test for big data
You would think. In any case FIFA came down hard on him and it certainly affected his team as they were eliminated. Amazing how unapologetic they were about the incident. Doesn't really want to make you root for them or show any sympathy either because of that arrogance.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
Well stated. Although I will say that when I have been watching the World Cup matches, I did not really remember the players from non-US teams. Except for the guy from Urugay who bit the Italian. And he was supposed to be a top class player.
