Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been lauded as the next technological revolution, right next to electricity that transformed every industry and created huge economic value. It has the potential to impact the existing healthcare, transportation, and energy industries as well as possibly create entirely new industries. Despite all this promise, AI is still at a very early stage of implementation, with few automated systems in production.
Find us on page 23 of the recent issue of the ROV Planet and learn how Abyssal´s advanced solutions tie into third-party tools, devices, and vehicles ensuring that you can design subsea fields, simulate and monitor operations, and collaboratively evaluate missions. The Abyssal Ecosystem ensures that you can do it safely, efficiently, and remotely.
On this very day, one year ago, I joined the Abyssal team as an intern, more specifically, in the AI research team. While a normal day for most, for me it was both my first day and my birthday, information that became known quickly among everyone. Consequently, during a regular company meeting, they welcomed me with the “happy birthday” song and, although I don‘t care to admit it, I blushed a bit from the attention.
Subsea industries, such as Marine Renewables or Oil & Gas, have been paving the way for safer and smart inspection operations underwater in order to improve efficiency while reducing their carbon footprint. If you’re part of this journey you may already be aware that this will require planned subsea operations to be performed by unmanned systems. You’ve probably heard about simulation, remote control, and intelligent vehicles. You’ve certainly been told you need data. Indeed, if you are taking part in this journey, I’m sure you feel data hungry today.
Under the theme Advancing Sustainable Energy, the 6th Galp Open Days took place in Estoril (Lisbon) this year. Abyssal’s team was there to show how we’ve been working towards a more sustainable future for subsea operations.
