Synopsis

Not the ship that sailed from England to the New World in 1620 - this one is for today and tomorrow!

A great opportunity to meet/e-meet Rosie Lickorish of IBM, who is currently leading the development of pioneering new approaches for gathering data about the ocean with the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS).

Using AI-powered autonomous sensors onboard crewless ships like MAS, marine biologists and oceanographers will be able to gather more information about ecological, environmental and sustainability challenges from sea level height change, microplastic pollution, and marine mammal conservation.
