In order to understand the life that lives in the ocean, we need to scale up our observing capabilities. To achieve this, we need to increase our capacity for biological observations by building distributed networks to take better advantage of imagery coming from a suite of systems.
Here we will bring Ocean Vision AI into the UN Decade context, which will engage researchers and innovators across nations and sectors (e.g., academic, government, non-profit, for-profit).
Ocean Vision AI will provide a central hub for incubating groups that use imaging, AI, open data, and hardware/software; create data pipelines from existing image and video data repositories; provide project tools for coordination; leverage public participation and engagement via game development; and generate data products that are shared widely and freely.
We will work with Marine Life 2030 and other Decade efforts to co-design and share our capabilities and tools to advance the Decade challenges, goals, and outcomes.
