Advances in artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics have been used to improve the toolkit of marine scientists, allowing them to take more accurate measurements of environments whilst using less time in the field.
The Marine Technology Research Unit, a collaboration between academics at the Schools of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and Life Sciences at the University of Essex, develops such techniques both in the lab and in the field.
This talk will give an overview of the research, from surveying marine environments in 3D through to printing 3D models of coral colonies, and feature an interactive demo of a computer game developed to explore how crustaceans use complexity in reef systems.
Dr Jon Chamberlain is a Senior Lecturer and researcher in collective intelligence, information processing and marine technology at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex. He is the director of the Marine Technology Research Unit and collaborates with Life Sciences both with teaching and research.
This seminar is being held in person in STEM 3.1 (STEM Centre on Square 1, Colchester campus). You can also watch via Zoom (meeting ID: 916 2270 2239)
