Presently used to facilitate marine conservation and research, the technology is also capable of supporting environmentally friendly business practices at sea through supplying intelligence on the presence of marine species at risk of being impacted by potentially disruptive activity.
Relying on its thorough research into the automatic detection of maritime vessels, TEKEVER was able to quickly alter its AI model and trained algorithms for the detection of various types of marine wildlife, such as whales and dolphins.
TEKEVER’s extensive investment into deep learning has brought about the ability to detect whales through their thermal signature, along…
