The use of robotics and artificial intelligence in marine technology will be the theme of Marine-i’s next Discovery Room event.

Speakers at the free event, which will take place on November 22 at Tremough Innovation Centre, will include market-leading companies such as Ørsted (previously Dong Energy (UK)), Cornwall-based TouchByte and Autonomous Systems developer SEICHE, as well as experts from the University of Exeter and Plymouth University.

Simon Cheeseman, sector lead on wave and tidal energy at the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and lead organiser for this event, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to get up to speed on the newest developments in robotics and artificial intelligence and the many rapidly emerging opportunities in the marine sector.

“This is a dynamic and diverse sector that is creating exciting opportunities for innovative businesses of all sizes.”

ORE Catapult will discuss the challenges involved and Innovate UK will talk about national funding opportunities. There will also be interactive exhibits and innovative technologies on display.

Marine-i is an EU-funded scheme that provides support for the marine technology sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Its Discovery Room events are designed to draw together all the very latest thinking and expertise on a specific theme of marine technology, delivered in a series of short, punchy presentations and followed up by interactive workshops and Q&A sessions.
