Workshop theme: Ocean mapping in the Anthropocene: new technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools

Human activities have radically changed the Earth System state and functioning to such an extent that we are now living in a new geological Epoch, the Anthropocene, in which humans are recognized as a geological factor radically modifying the environment.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview about the newest methods (including AI) to monitor and assess the impact of human activities on the seafloor in coastal and shelf environments and in deep sea areas. Case studies showing new robotic solutions, instruments and AI tools will be presented including a practical demonstration session for data processing workflow in view of Big Data Management.
