IBM recently sponsored our UK Institute event on the 4th March 2021 and following that event, Paula Carey of the CIO Institute spoke with Andy Stanford-Clark, CTO at IBM UK & Ireland and Rosie Lickorish Software Engineer at IBM Research.
In this Interview Andy and Rosie spoke in depth about ‘The Mayflower - Autonomous Ship’ ahead of its maiden voyage. They answer a range of questions including Why do we need autonomous ships for ocean science? How common are autonomous ships and devices, for collecting ocean data today? What kind of sensor data does the ship take into account? What are the key enabling technologies for autonomous ships and how could they be applied to other industries?
View the Interview above to hear their responses to the wide range of topics and to hear what is next for ‘The Mayflower’.
