Artificial Intelligence and Big Data - A Marine Engineering Perspective

  • Andrea Coraddu (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


For the maritime industry, the Information Age means the availability of apparently ever-growing amount of Data from multiple sensors present on board. These sensors are nowadays embedded in most of the main new-built ship components and enable to monitor virtually every aspect of the vessel operations. The data monitoring system could provide a variety of services: remote support; decision support system and condition-based maintenance. Sensors deployed measure the condition of the vessels and are continuously generating a large volume of data. These data need to be processed and analysed to produce useful insights into real-world vessel operations that can further improve safety and efficiency. Moreover, the investigation about autonomous shipping operations has taken up speed in the latest years, Autonomous Vessels and operations would require in future effective and robust real-time monitoring and decision support system based on accurate and reliable predictive algorithm.

The key point for the discussion will be the utilisation of innovative data-driven approaches for vessel monitoring including remote assistance, condition-based maintenance on primary systems and performance assessment/optimisation on vessels' operations.
