There’s an interesting thread on Facebook started by Jeremy Waters.
After watching video overlays of Biles v Maroney on Vault, Jeremy wonders why gymnastics judging is still done by humans rather than computers?
Nick Blanton noted FIG’s IRCOS video analysis system.
A baby step.
John Carney wants to build a giant Microsoft Kinect device to more precisely measure things like handstand angles on Bars.
Nike+ Kinect is the most advanced technology I’ve seen working towards that goal.

I hope I live long enough to see final judging scores at least partially decided by computer algorithm. 🙂
