Ocean research benefits from new wave measurement sensor

In this episode, we talk about how a group at MIT has developed an easy-to-use handheld device to treat internal bleeding and a joint effort between MIT and Imperial College London which resulted in a marine mammal call sensor that can leverage machine learning models locally

Podcast: AI Powered Devices For Saving Lives & Studying Oceans

Designed to bring machine learning to the Earth's last great frontier, a prototype smart sensor platform users on-device inference to classify marine mammal calls — powering itself exclusively from the sounds it captures.

Ultra-efficient machine learning offers on-device inference powered solely by sound - under the sea

Research could enable monitoring of our oceans or exploration of alien ocean worlds

Engineers Teach AI to Navigate Ocean with Minimal Energy

Scientists have developed a new deep-learning model for counting the number of seals in aerial photos that is considerably faster than doing it by hand. With this new method, valuable time and resources could be saved which can be used to further study and protect endangered species.
