Reading time with an analog clock is surprisingly difficult for computers, but artificial intelligence can now be read accurately using methods that were previously proven to be difficult to deploy.

Computer vision I have been able to read the time from a digital clock for a long time just by looking at the numbers on the screen. However, analog watches are much more difficult due to design variations and the way shadows and reflections cover your hands.

Researchers at Oxford University have developed the system …
