10:30 pm
so i grew up in denmark, a very small country, 5 million people. which means we are too small for anyone to want to dub them, so i grew up with subtitles. and while i am accustomed to subtitles today, it does take away a certain element of the experience. how do we make sure that this technology is used for its commercial benefits rather than through its political dangers? i think it's very important that you have good actors in this space, that understand technology, that can help shape it both from a public awareness perspective but also very much in developing safety mechanisms to ensure that it's not used for bad. let me give you an example of how this ai technology can be used. so for instance, i might say, "my name's amol rajan, i love reggae music and my favourite band is the wailers." but how about i say that again in vietnamese, not a language i speak, as it happens. or what if i made a mistake and wanted to change my words? rather than reshoot the whole sequence, i could use the same clip,
10:31 pm
but reanimate the pictures matching my voice from a separate bit of filming. my name's amol rajan, i love opera, my favourite composer is wagner. ifind his music uplifting and a challenge to listen to. but in the age of information overload, truth can be hard to find. when you report fake news, what cnn does a lot, you are the enemy of the people. go ahead. mr president... last week the white house shared a video of donald trump's confrontation with a cnn reporter, which the network claimed had been modified. cnn say it had been manipulated by conspiracy theorists who support the president. what if concerns over fake news such as these posts on facebook are but nothing compared to the potential harm from fake video? people will not be able to trust the truth. they won't be able to tell what is real, what is not real. and in some cases they may be faced with reports that are real, but they won't trust them. a war for the truth is raging in our media today. and while this technology
10:32 pm
will make television better, it could make already fragile democracies much worse. amol rajan, bbc news. hello and welcome to sportsday. lam iamjohn i am john watson. the headlines tonight... wayne rooney prepares for his england return, a return which has split opinion. after an opening round defeat — roger federer recovers to boost his hopes at the atp tour finals. and after his best season yet, lewis hamilton warns his rivals there's more to come. hello and welcome.
10:33 pm
his recall to the england squad has divided opinion. today wayne rooney said he's not asking people to agree with the fa's decision to grant him a farewell match against the usa on thursday, but that he was simply looking forward to thanking the fans for their support in his career. england's record goal—scorer faced the media today ahead of his last appearance for his country and our sports correspondent natalie priks was there. the view was a familiar one, two yea rs the view was a familiar one, two years after he last wore it, england's record goal scorer is back in an england shirt. the important thing for me is not whether i wear the armband were whether i play 90 minutes, it is to have the
10:34 pm
opportunity to poll on the shirt again for that last time and as i keep saying, it certainly will be a special moment. it is an honour that has never been given to another former glen player before though other countries have managed it successfully. one final sendoff is also good for business. since he was confirmed to play in the game there have been thousands more tickets sold them the fa would usually expect for a friendly and has turned it into something of a spectacle which for some is where the problem lies. i see why dfa might want to do this for a financial reason but some would say it would devalue the insured if someone is paid... picked other than merit and form. how would you feel... i know a lot of older
10:35 pm
players particularly, who were as well as they possibly should have been but this is through no fault of the members of the fa or coaching staff today, i think the fa are trying to move in a different direction and celebrate the players who have made an impact for the country. so, it is going to be split opinions because it is the first one where hopefully in the future there will be a lot more. that he comes on during the second half on thursday, it will be for the last ever time. you would not bet against him going out without obeying. —— without a bang. scotland's women were the latest side to be beaten by the united states with the world champions extending their winning run to ten games with a 1—0 win in paisley this evening. alex morgan gave the us the lead in the first half. and the visitors nearly doubled their lead after the break when mallory pugh was brought down by kirsty smith in the box.
10:36 pm
but carli lloyd smashed her penalty against the crossbar. scotland are set to make their first appearance in the world cup next summer in france. the premier league has named a new chief executive — susanna dinnage will take over when richard scudamore steps down next month. in his 19 years at the organisation he's overseen a 12 fold increase in the premier league's rights to more than £8 billion. it's believed top flight clubs have been asked to contribute to a £5 five million farewell gift for scudamore. ireland are chasing a target of 140 to win their first match of the women's t20. they're playing pakistan in guyana and are currently 76 forfourfrom 3 overs. pakistan had lost both of their opening fixtures in the tournament but put together a good score thanks to an innings of 7a from javeria khan.
10:37 pm
three wickets from lucy o'reilly, including this stumping, helped ireland drag back a bit of momentum, but they've struggled to score since losing opener clare shillington for 27 and are going to need a big finish if they're to win this. ben stokes will bat at number three in the second test with sri lanka, which gets under way in just a few hours. play starts in kandy at 4:30 uk time. stokes will move up with moeen ali dropping down to bat at six. the rest of the team remains unchanged which means ben foakes keeps wicket, there's no place in the side for fit—againjonny bairstow. it's a squad packed with options, providing a bit of a selection headache for captain joe root. it isa it is a great position to be in, the fa ct it is a great position to be in, the fact that we turn up here and are full of confidence as a group and as a squad and we have the opportunity to play the same team and if the service requires that but we also have a group of guys that at the
10:38 pm
sideline, chomping at the bit and ready to take the opportunity, if it looks like they could be the guys to exploit that. day three of the atp tour finals in london, roger federer kept alive his chances of reaching the semi finals after victory over dominic thiem, he lost his tournament opener to kei nishikori, who slipped to one of the heaviest defeats of his career losing to kevin anderson in the first match of the day at london's o2. nick parrot reports. after his defeat to kei nishikori, all eyes were on roger federer and whether he would bounce back. these west lost his last two encounters against the austrian and he made a good start. but before the match federer said he wanted to be aggressive and was just that. it was an approach that put thiem under pressure, forcing him into errors. federer was rather more like his old south... —— old self. binion had the
10:39 pm
upper hand. it looked like the mac was trying too hard as he was broken immediately in the second set. it was only with defeat looking in a bubble that he saved a break point but he'd never looks likely to get back into the contest and federer put him out of his misery in an hour in six minutes. next up for the six—time champion will be a far tougher opponent in kevin anderson. earlier he thrashed nisha cory 6—1 and he is top of the group. he will be confident of staying there. —— kei nishikori. and jamie murray reached the doubles semi—finals in london for a third successive year. the scot and brazilian partner bruno soares beat colombia's juan—sebastian cabal and robert farah 6—4, 6—3. having become just the third formula one driver in history to win five world titles — the question now being asked of lewis hamilton, will he go on and equal, even surpass michael schumacher‘s record of seven?
10:40 pm
the mercedes driver has returned to the team's factory in the south east of england ahead of the final race of the season next weekend. and sent a warning to his rivals he cans still get better. joe wilson reports. one, two, 345. it takes hundreds of employees, lewis hamilton and what exactly employees, lewis hamilton and what exa ctly d o employees, lewis hamilton and what exactly do you do? take with a build and bring more to it, bring more out of it than anyone else can do. that is what i have been able to do since i was is what i have been able to do since iwasa is what i have been able to do since i was a kid, my first go kart, when i was a kid, my first go kart, when i was test practising as a kid was from the newspaper. written by five families or something. recognise me now, iam lewis families or something. recognise me now, i am lewis hamilton. do you feel like you have nothing left to prove ? feel like you have nothing left to prove? no. that is not even a part
10:41 pm
of my psyche. i feel like i still have more, more years and more days ahead of me if i am lucky. ifeel like the mind isjust ahead of me if i am lucky. ifeel like the mind is just a tool so ahead of me if i am lucky. ifeel like the mind isjust a tool so i am a lwa ys like the mind isjust a tool so i am always trying to sharpen it. his interest in fashion and music makes them stand out, other drivers do not do that. that is the point. it has been the case where people put you ina box been the case where people put you in a box and i think —— and think thatis in a box and i think —— and think that is all you do. but there is no reason we cannot that is all you do. but there is no reason we cannot indulge in other areas. our sport is a niche sport so we areas. our sport is a niche sport so we do have a core group of fans but still nowhere near as some other groups for example. one introduce new people into racing, they get hooked. if you can imagine your list of dreams there, do you imagine what is the top of it? i love space, that is the top of it? i love space, that isa dream is the top of it? i love space, that is a dream that is kind of crazy. i would love to go into a fighterjet. f1
10:42 pm
would love to go into a fighterjet. fi needs a recognisable face and imagine without, ultan, who else is there? —— without hamilton, who else is there. there is nothing that he has not set his sights on. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are miranda green, who's deputy comment editor for the ft, and christopher hope, the chief political correspondent at the daily telegraph. welcome to both of you. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. unsurprisingly, most papers lead on the brexit developments and that potential agreement.
10:43 pm
moment of truth — is the telegraph's take on it. it says the prime minister faces a backlash from her cabinet ministers. celebrating prince charles's seventieth, the paper also carries an official family photograph marking the occasion. the guardian leads with four of the key cabinet ministers who theresa may needs to back her deal alongside the headline, this is the deal, now back me. that is how they portray it. the mail carries the offical photograph of prince charles and his family marking his 70th, along with the headline, judgement day. the express leads with theresa may's claim that this deal is the best for britain. it says she faces the fight of her political life to convince her colleagues, parliament and the country to accept it. the financial times also describes it as the moment of truth. it says the prime minister faces the most dangerous moment in her premiership as she tries to persuade a divided cabinet to back the draft treaty. the i says ‘deal done,‘
10:44 pm
but warns that all the prime minister has to do is get it past her cabinet, the commons, the lords, the dup and 27 eu nations. and marking his 70th birthday — the sun carries a front page of prince charles and the royal family — under the the headline — grins of wales. so that is the theme, i think it is brexit, ladies and gentlemen for the next little while. take us off, what are they saying about all of this in the guardian? it has played it pretty straight. the news came this afternoon that theresa may felt she had enough of a deal agreed with the eu that she could come back, put it to her very divided cabinet and move on if she can manage to get it past them and put it to parliament. and them and put it to parliament. and the guardian has decided to go on this idea that this evening theresa may was apparently calling in the
10:45 pm
cabinet members one by one to try and convince them to back her, and before then tomorrow she has pm queues to get through and a crucial cabinet meeting at 2pm tomorrow which really will be a crunch. will all of the cabinets will be in position at 2pm tomorrow? we do not know yet. there is this fascinating echo of mrs bacher who at the very and had to call and her ministers one by one when she actually was then bought by the advice they gave her to give then bought by the advice they gave herto give up then bought by the advice they gave her to give up and back out. it is a really high—sta kes gay her to give up and back out. it is a really high—stakes gay men for theresa may because not everything in the deal which is also not quite finalised will appease the hard mind remainders or hard minds —— hard—line
