thank you. stop it. i'm going to cry. john maguire, bbc news, margate. let's check on the weather prospects. hello, there. the further east you are scanning to stay dry. it is no lower than around six to 10 degrees. this is the pressure chart for monday stop. pressure chart for monday showery bursts... eastern college at ten to stay dry. double—figure values
6:31 pm
further north. it stays mild on into tuesday as well as we get some mild airoff the tuesday as well as we get some mild air off the new continent. low— pressure air off the new continent. low—pressure spitting up toward the west of the country was to gradually bring more unsettled weather to our shores. hello, this is bbc news with julian worricker. the headlines... the businessman, arron banks, has insisted that all the money he provided to the leave campaign in the run—up to the referendum came from his uk companies. he's facing a police investigation into claims that he was not the true source of the funding. an investigation is under way into the collapse of a giant inflatable slide at a funfair and fireworks display in woking, in surrey last night. seven of the eight children who were hurt have been theresa may, david cameron, and tony blair have paid tribute to the former head of the civil service, sirjeremy heywood, who has died from cancer at the age of 56. he had retired less than two weeks ago. players and officials

6:34 pm
late on, handed city their second six one win of the season. danny ings pulling one back for saints from the spot. city remain unbeaten, two points clear. the game is over, 90 minutes, it wasn't over, it not over because in the premier league, we were lucky to score in the first half. in terms of... good finishing. the game is not over. you have got to be really resolute and defensively sound to keep back and defensively sound to keep back an outstanding manchester city team, everybody knows that. we were a little bit lightweight in the opening and did not win second balls
6:35 pm
and did not really deal with one versus one situations, which is difficult considering the pace and power they have, but i expected us to be better in that regard, and very quickly we found ourselves down in the game and the game was gone. it's chelsea who lead the chasing pack, their 3—1 win over crystal palace keeps their unbeaten record in tact. alvaro morata scored twice — as eden hazard made his return from injury coming off the bench in the second half. nick parrot was watching. during his time in charge at sta mford during his time in charge at stamford bridge, ranieri was nicknamed the tinker man. consistent selections have been rewarded with consistent results. there were unchanged against crystal palace and hoping to remain unbeaten this season hoping to remain unbeaten this season when they were put in front after half an hour. that failed to break this encounter to life, though. another 20 minutes before there was another shot on target,
6:36 pm
this time from a player with his first league goal in 20 games to bring him palace level. it was a wake—up call for bring him palace level. it was a wa ke—up call for chelsea, who bring him palace level. it was a wake—up call for chelsea, who write on eden hazard to get things going. the spaniard scored his and chelsea's second. just five minute later, pedro wrapped things up to see... i think we were a little bit in trouble. we need some coloured —— quality, personality. we were lucky today. eden was on the bench. so he was able immediately to change the match. so city on top, two points clear and with a hugely
6:37 pm
superior goal difference, chelsea second and liverpool the only other unbeaten side, tottenham making up the top four. huddersfield, fulham and cardiff make up the bottom three — huddersfield and fulham meet tomorrow night which aleady looks like a crucial game for both sides in their fight for survival. leeds have returned to the top of the championship after a 2—1win at wigan athletic. it was an emotional day at the dw stadium, as the club played their final game under the ownership of dave whelan. his family has sold the club to a far east consortium. looked like it was going to be a fairytale send—off for the whelan family when reece james put them ahead inside the opening six minutes butleeds were back on level terms barely three minutes later, pablo hernandez finshing a fine move from the visitors.
6:38 pm
the comeback was complete with the second halfjust a minute old. kemar roofe capitalising on a defensive mix—up to walk the ball into an empty net. so leeds move above norwich at the top due to their greater goal difference. just four points separate the top six. a late winner saw mid table aberdeen beat kilmarnock 2—1 in the scottish premiership. kilmarnock were looking for theirfirst home win against aberdeen since 2011 and they did take the lead through a kris boyd penalty, that was awarded after a foul by shay logan on chris burke. in the second half, bruce anderson flicked in niall mcginn‘s shot to level the scores before 19 year old lewis ferguson curled in this free—kick to give aberdeen all three points. women's super league leaders, arsenal beat birmingham 3—1 to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season. with seven wins in seven matches.
6:39 pm
after a goalless first half, jordan nobbs opened the scoring in the 58th minute. but bimingham pulled back level within a minute with this goal from emma follis. arsenal were awarded a penalty and danielle van donk put them back ahead and it was nobbs again late in to injury time who doubled her tally to help seal an seventh league win of the season for arsenal. beating liverpool 3—nil — nikita parris with two goals to become the league's new all time leading goal scorer with 37 goals, surpassing eni aluko‘s record. get ready to see wayne rooney in an england shirt again — as the all time record goal—scorer for his country he play a farewell match against the united states later this month in support of his foundation england's all—time record goal—scorer, who now plays his club football in america for dc united, will face the united states at wembley to earn his 120th international cap. the match will be called the wayne rooney foundation international in support of his charitable interests.
6:40 pm
the wembley arch will also be lit up in the gold colours of his charity. in a statement, rooney said, "i am truly humbled and hugely excited to play for england at wembley again. i would like to thank gareth southgate and the fa for inviting me back and helping to support my foundation in the process. playing for england was the greatest honour of my career — so winning my 120th, and final, cap will be a particularly special moment for me. it's fitting that the match will be against the usa and i hope that both sets of fans enjoy the game." to rugby league, where england have won their series with new zealand — tommy makinson with a hat trick of tries at anfield. it leaves them with two wins out of two, heading into teh final test to come in leeds next sunday.
6:41 pm
david 0rnstein reports. anfield is among the most iconic sporting venues, normally a home to one of the biggest teams in club football, today, hosting two giants of international rugby league. a change in the type of action, though not the intensity of competition, as shown by new zealand's physical approach. england into an early lead, but it would not last long, with the opponents quickly crossing to take control, wounded by defeat in the first test last weekend, the kiwis were turning the table. england stood firm and turn defence into attack, resulting in a spectacular reply, as tommy makinson took to the air to level the scores on the verge of half—time. the quality of him as a finisher! after the break, a near carbon copy. anything you can do, we can do just as impressively. the men in black immediately hitting back and regaining their grip on the contest. there was far less of a grip
6:42 pm
on the tempers of both teams, and while the disharmony seems to distract new zealand, england were energised. a moment of a finesse, makinson again on hand. back in the chess match. it was all square, all to play for. the final say was going to be from makinson. tommy makinson to finish! england were ecstatic, another sporting occasion for anfield to savour. this means a lot to me, to perform asa this means a lot to me, to perform as a team like we did, it was brilliant. it was all made by purdue special people around me, george, keep terrorised defences, and then
6:43 pm
jake, great people, top—quality, and it shows what a good team chemistry we have got. justin rose has reclaimed golf‘s world number one ranking after victory at the turkish 0pen. he came from three shots behind going into the final round to win in a play—off, both he and china's li haotong finished on 17 under. it's his 19th career win and lifts him back to the top of the rankings for the first time since september. there was a surprise result in the final of the paris masters where the 22—year—old russian karen khachanov beat the world number one novak djokovic. khachanov, currently ranked number 18 in the world, had already defeated three top ten players on his way to the final. djokovic — a four time winner here — lost in striaght sets — 7—5 6—4. djokovic had been on a 22 match winning run. jonny bairstow has been ruled out
6:44 pm
of the first of england's three test matches against sri lanka, which begin on tuesday. the wicket—keeper twisted his ankle playing football in training during the one—day series, and missed the final two 50—over matches. england have not won a test series in sri lanka since 2001. it's not yet been announced who will take his place behind the stumps for the match in galle. some others stories making the headlines. mark allen beat australia's neil robertson by ten frames to five to win the international championship in daching, china. it's his fourth ranking title of his career and he earned the tidy sum of £175,000 for his victory as well. britain'sjonny brownlee has finished second overall in the super league triathlon in mallorca. he finished behind france's vincent luis in the enduro — the final event of the weekend.
6:45 pm
luis also took the overall win. that is all on me. i will be back at half past seven. next up, it is click. that's what the future is about, if you believe the hype. computer programmes that learn from past experience, that improve and that sometimes, learn to solve problems in ways that even we hadn't thought of. well, here at microsoft's future decoded event, ai is at the top of the agenda. these days, there are very real examples of how ai are starting to be able to do things that were once only the reserve of humans. it is learning to drive, to play games. it has learned to paint. it has learned to understand what we say. each ten year or so we seem to have a breakthrough moment where we take a piece of human ability and defeat it with machine. ‘96 it was chess, go, last year — and we all worry. what that is demonstrating is that our ais are extraordinarily good and superhuman in tasks that we can specify and understand. they can improve and self improve. the challenge is this whole idea of general intelligence or transfer
6:46 pm
across tasks and that proves much more challenging, much more difficult. we think it will take many decades to unfathom that, and the old adage was, you cannot teach a machine to do something without programming, but if you have a learning capacity in the system that allows it to go beyond the performance that was originally given to the system. and it is certainly true that al is already replacing us in particularjobs. we will talk more about that later. but we thought we would start with an interesting phenomenon which is happening in certain parts of the developing world, where ai is actually creating jobs. see, in orderfor artificial intelligence to learn, it needs to have access to loads and loads of data. for example, self driving cars need access to images where all the objects in them are correctly tagged. that work is being done by humans. david lee sent this report, not from california, but from where the artificial intelligence journey really starts.
6:47 pm
this is the kibera slum in nairobi, kenya. more than a million people live here. i am 10,000 miles and what feels like an entire universe away from the lush campuses of silicon valley. how are you? hello! the people i am here to meet are every bit as vital to the next wave of cutting edge tech as anyone you could meet in california. you have your brother living here? yes, my brother, my daughter and my mum. are they all supported by you? yes. they are supported by me. this is brenda, she's a 26—year—old single mother, who has lived in kibera her entire life. how does it feel to be creating the technology that is going to change the future? it feels so good. at least you get to do something unique from others. at least with my work that i am doing, i believe
6:48 pm
i work for something that is going to help me. not even me in the future, but it will help someone in the future. every workday, brenda travels for around two hours to a building on the other side of nairobi. she is among a team of around 2,000 people who work in this building for samasource, an organisation that recruits people from the very poorest parts of the world. in some cases, that means those who are earning less than $2 a day. here, they earn around $9 a day and there are importantjob is to give artificial intelligence its intelligence. when artificial intelligence works, it sometimes feels like magic. but really, what it is is data, lots and lots of data. if you want a self driving car to know what a person is, you have to feed it loads of pictures of people. if you want it to know what tree is, it takes millions and millions of pictures of trees.
6:49 pm
that is what is called "training data", and it is here where that data is created. so, depending on the instructions, we are going to basically tag, or annotate, items of interest. right. from the street to the vehicles, the buildings, even to the sky. right. how is that? that's good. is that good? not quite right? not quite right. laughter. the item needs to be squarely inside that box. if we zoom in... turns out no pixel can be out of place, or unaccounted for. the sky and the street signs, the pedestrians and the lanes, everything needs tagging. once the work is done, a supervisor will check it is up to scratch. the quickest, sharpest annotators in the team will win prizes, such as shopping vouchers. samasource‘s clients include google, sales force, ebay, yahoo and many others, working on everything from self driving cars to online shopping. one recent project from
6:50 pm
microsoft's bing search engine helped it become better at identifying certain types of clothing. while most of their employees are of course in the developing world, the compa ny‘s headquarters can be found in san francisco's mission district. when i first started this business ten years ago, very smart people in the tech world and in the world of big philanthropy said it was a wonderful idea, but it would never work. lila touts her company's record on quality and security, reasons why tech firms come to them. but of course, there is a very obvious reason why these tasks are outsourced to places where wages are rock bottom and people are desperate for work. some of your clients are the biggest, richest companies in the world. can they not afford to pay more than $9 a day for this work? we make a guarantee to every single worker at samasource that they are paid a living wage.
6:51 pm
if we were to pay people substantially more than that in some of the markets we are in, we would throw everything off and it would have a potentially negative impact on the cost of housing, the cost of food, et cetera and the communities in which our workers live and thrive. so, for us, we are on average, increasing our workers household income by over 500%. it is too small for my big head. you know the way you remember you are good at something and it turns out you weren't? this is me discovering that with batting. luckily, indian cricket legend anil kumble was on hand to show how it ought to be done. the most important factor for any bastman is bat speed and how much twist at the time of impact and the quality of the shot itself, how close to this sweet spot here. bat speed, twist and how close you are to hitting the sweet spot are now measurable thanks to new artificial intelligence
6:52 pm
technology, power bat. it is being developed by kumble‘s company, spektakom. at the heart of a system is a clever sticker on the back of the bat. this is a cluster of sensors, you have a bluetooth aerial, but also gyro sensor which measures the twist of the bat, the angle and the velocity as well. there is also a sensor for vibration so you can detect where the ball is hitting in approximation to that all—importa nt sweet spot. the sticker sends those measurements for the speed, the twist, the quality of the shot, and they are then combined to calculate the power. it is essentially the energy you get into the shot. the system aims to take fans watching the game up close to what's happening on the pitch. the first use is to enhance fan engagement. everybody talks about timing of the shot. the first use is to
6:53 pm
enhance fan engagement. everybody talks about timing of the shot. this was powerfully hit. this was sweetly timed. what does that all mean in real—time numbers, in real—time data? the amateur version of power bat communicates directly to a mobile phone via bluetooth, but because you can't carry a mobile in professional games, with the pro set—up, all data runs to a device hidden behind the stumps. this is how the professional system works. the data comes from a tag on the back of a bat and then comes to stumpy, the stump box buried underground. you can see this antenna, this bit will be poking out from the top of the pitch. the data is sent down the cable to the cloud where an algorithm does its work. and this is where microsoft's expertise in artificial
6:54 pm
intelligence takes the field. we found that we can apply technology to a very traditional sport, cricket, and actually enhance the user engagement and the player and the coach insight into what's actually happening at the cricket bat. tech now can help both the coaches and the players achieve a new level of performance. the pro power bat might end up being used by umpires, especially if the broadcasters now using it in the indian professional league call out bad on—field umpiring decisions. the mobile app is more about cricket fans and amateur players getting closer to emulating their heroes. for the fan out there who wants to look up to his hero, what is the benchmark for him to achieve? can you emulate him? can you be as close to power that he can deliver, can you do that? that is something you can do.
6:55 pm
at the end of the day, in a polite arrangement, anil let me bowl him out. yes, it was fake but i got him first ball. it felt great. watch this for a second. see, all you needed was just one ball. that is it for the short cut of click this week. the full version is up on iplayer. watch it right now and don't forget we are all over social media. we live on facebook and on twitter @bbcclick and instagram at @bbcclick and we have a you tube channel too. youtube.com/....guess what — bbc click. some rain and cloud pushing
6:56 pm
northwards into the irish sea tonight, bringing outbreaks of rain into northern ireland and western scotland. picking up to become heavier during the early hours but much of the country should be dry with variable cloud. fairly cool, some mist and fog and wins will be light. the new working week, weather front is draping across the northwest corner of the country. for much of the country, monday is looking dry with some sunshine breaking through, probably the best of it in the midlands and the southeast, where we could see 16 or 17 degrees. there could be a few late evening showers here. a big pressure out, a vincek —— a big area
6:57 pm
of pressure out, a vincek, more u nsettled of pressure out, a vincek, more unsettled conditions during the week. for most of us, it is going to say on the mild side. —— stay on the mild side. this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 7pm: the businessman aaron banks insists all the money he gave to a pro—brexit campaign in the run up to the referedum came from his uk businesses, not from russia. i'm telling you it came from a uk company that had cash generated in the uk. which uk company? rock services. an investigation‘s begun into how eight children fell from an inflatable slide at a fireworks display in woking last night. none suffered serious injuries.
6:58 pm
tributes are paid to the recently retired cabinet secretary — sirjeremy heywood — who has died from cancer at the age of 56. 10,000 flames are lit at the tower of london, launching a week of commemorations marking 100 years since the end of the first world war. we're live in the united states — where former president barack 0bama is about to rally democrats in indiana ahead of tuesday's mid—terms, the first nationwide electoral test since donald trump was elected president. cheering and, back on land at last — the man who's become the first person to swim around the entire coastline of britain. hello.
6:59 pm
good evening to you. welcome to bbc news. the pro—brexit businessman aaron banks has again insisted that all the money he provided for a campaign to leave the european union was generated from his businesses in the uk, and therefore within the rules on political donations.
