WattTime, a nonprofit artificial intelligence firm, announced that it will cooperate with Google.org on a new project that has to do with the use of global network of satellites to measure carbon emissions from all large power plants worldwide and render the information public.
NAPA, a maritime software, services and data analysis provider and ChartWorld, a digital chart agent, announced their partnership to provide artificial intelligence-driven voyage planning and optimization. The solution incorporates modules for evaluating the operational efficiency of past voyages. It then uses this data to improve the efficiency of future transits where there are similar variables and trends.
Nokia and Finnish private LTE provider Ukkoverkot have agreed to a four-year deal in order to bring connectivity, automation, and intelligence to the Port of Kokkola, Finland. The project will be covering computing, automation, and artificial intelligence. The private LTE network will use the local 2.6 GHz radio band, provided to the port by Ukkoverkot as part of the deal.
ABS, Google Cloud and SoftServe completed a pilot project applying artificial intelligence models to find levels of corrosion and coating breakdown on ships and offshore structures. The project showed the accuracy of AI in detecting and assessing structural anomalies commonly found during visual inspection. AI techniques could also be used to analyze images over time to understand corrosion and coating breakdown trends.
Start-ups have the capability to help the maritime industry adopt innovation among the increasing intrusion of digital technologies and lead its transformation. With a maritime backround, their founders may have worked for big maritime companies in the past, but are now exploring ways to work with a much smaller team. This gives them the ability to find solutions quickly.
The video, issued by Stena Line, shows how the Captain and crew onboard the cruise ferry ‘Stena Scandinavica’ are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to reduce the fuel consumption on the Gothenburg – Kiel route, under a pilot study initiated back in September 2018.
Gazprom Neft, part of Russian oil and gas company Gazprom, announced launch of the world’s first ever digital Arctic-logistics management system, aiming to ensure uninterrupted year-round shipments of crude produced and to improve efficiency in logistics management.
Some of the biggest European shipbuilders announced that they have created a new cooperative initiative to develop a connected vessel platform. This project is named Code Kilo and aims to address the digitalisation challenges of various stakeholders. Specifically, EUROYARDS members – Chantiers de l’Atlantique, Damen Shipyards Group, Fincantieri, Lürssen, Meyer Werft, Naval Group and Navantia – collaborated to improve data management solutions and standards.
Nautilus Labs has secured USD 11 million in Series A funding led by M12, Microsoft’s venture fund, along with Root Ventures. Existing and new investors including Quiet Capital, Trail Mix, and Amplifier Lab participated in the round, which brings Nautilus’ total funding raised to USD 14.5 million.
Fujitsu announced the results of a field trial that was conducted with the help of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. This trial analyzed marine traffic risks in the Singapore Strait, with Fujitsu presenting the usefulness of a new ship collision risk prediction technology. This new technology leverages the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in predicting near misses between vessels.
