Each year, a staggering 4.8 to 12.7 million tons of plastic invades our seas. Plastic debris poses a severe threat to marine life since it might cause the ingestion, suffocation, and entanglement of hundreds of marine species, or release toxic chemicals that endanger nearby organisms. At the forefront of climate clean-up, robots offer hope by removing hundreds of tons of plastics and other waste to keep oceans clean.
Furthermore, autonomous machines can perform vital monitoring and research tasks, gathering samples of microbial life and filming underwater without disturbing the delicate environment. They provide essential data to better understand marine ecosystems, including coral reef recovery from bleaching or cyclones, marine organism behaviors, and the impact of climate change on the ocean.
Join this AI for Good webinar to explore the potential of marine robots in documenting, understanding, and preserving marine biodiversity, working towards the goals for a healthy ocean by 2030.
