Naming ceremony held for unmanned Trimaran “Mayflower 2”
Aluship Technology built the sophisticated multihull structure for MSubs.
The event organized by Promare, MSubs and IBM in Plymouth, was attended by the Excellencies the Ambassador of United States of America, the Ambassador of The Netherlands, the First Sea Lord Admiral and the Mayor of Plymouth.
IBM developed Artificial Intelligence software for “Mayflower 2” also called as “AL captain” as a safe, flexible and cost-effective way of gathering data about the ocean. The ship will help scientists from ProMare, IBM Research, and other organizations study climate change, micro-plastic pollution, and marine mammal conservation, among other issues.
The AI software will be a game changer for unmanned commercial shipping as well and underlines the historical importance of this event in a double sense: Recall the pilgrimage of original “Mayflower” 400 years ago and the beginning of a new maritime era today.
- Please visit MAS400.com and find more details about the whole project and communicate with the AI-Octopus “Artie”. Enjoy!
