Intelligent Deployment Systems

Recent advances in ocean technology have elevated the role and potential of uncrewed systems across a range of marine industries, with artificial intelligence (AI) as the great enabler. In an increasingly connected world, in which information and communication technologies (ICT) are bolstered by an expanding Internet of Things (IoT), the ocean sector is fast approaching the realm of autonomy. However, any suggestion that, before long, conventional at-sea operations will be fully governed by an ecosystem of self-governing robots is somewhat misguided.
