TechCrunch: Autonomous ‘Mayflower’ research ship will use IBM AI tech to cross the Atlantic in 2020

TechCrunch: Autonomous ‘Mayflower’ research ship will use IBM AI tech to cross the Atlantic in 2020. “A fully autonomous ship called the ‘Mayflower’ will make its voyage across the Atlantic Ocean next September, to mark the 400-year anniversary of the trip of the first Mayflower, which was very much not autonomous. It’s a stark way to drive home just how much technology has advanced in the last four centuries, but also a key demonstration of autonomous seafaring technology, put together by marine research and exploration organization Promare and powered by IBM technology.”
