The potential of digitalisation and the imperative of decarbonisation mean shipping needs to embrace secure, regulated networks, writes Tore Morten Olsen, President, Maritime, Marlink.
During the 2020 SMART4SEA Athens Forum, Mr. Mike Konstantinidis, CEO, METIS Cyberspace Technology, addressed in brief the necessity for the digital transformation in the maritime, as well as the contribution of smart technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in the development of a new era in shipping.
During the 2020 SMART4SEA Athens Forum, Andreas Chrysostomou, Chief Strategy Officer, Tototheo, presented the concept of data sharing platform and the importance of collaboration between all the shipping sectors.
Andreas Chrysostomou, CEO, Marine Fields explains how shipping may effectively use data, which is rightly characterized as the ‘Gold of the digital age’ and refers to his company data sharing platform, Perseus, that aims to enhance the predictability of port call operations. Concluding, Mr. Chrysostomou calls industry to follow the evolution timely, stressing that we are to witness more digital developments in future and that there is need to build a ‘shipping digital culture’ to embrace transparency, collaboration and efficiency.
Port State Control inspection records suggest safety standards are improving, but a closer examination reveals areas for improvement, says Paul Stanley, CEO, Global Navigation Solutions. Mr. Stanley believes that enhancing data transparency would play a pivotal role in improving the overall shipping safety.
The shipping industry appears to be transmuting and adapting to the current world scenario. Regulatory compliance, monitoring and reporting requirements are either piling up or just around the corner, Melvin Mathews, Captain, Maritime Director, Eniram notes.
