News Uncharted Waters: Maritime Blazes a Trail with A.I.

September 17, 2018

In its “Uncharted Waters: Maritime Blazes a Trail with A.I.,” article, KNect365’s Leah Kinthaert shared expertise from shipping and maritime innovation and technology leaders, representing both large organizations and startups, to learn how they see artificial intelligence (A.I.) impacting the industry. Sea Machines’ Founder and CEO Michael Johnson responded:

“The maritime industry today is highly manual and has a relatively high accident rate, largely due to human error. Sea Machines recognizes one solution to this includes deploying advanced perception and situational awareness technology, using Artificial Intelligence powered by deep learning aboard commercial ships. Such technology is closer than many realize: Sea Machines will trial it starting in Q4 aboard a Maersk container ship. This product is expected to improve at-sea situational awareness, object identification and tracking, and will provide intelligent information directly to the wheelhouse. Ultimately it will increase the safety, predictability and productivity of real-world shipping operations.”
