Trustworthy, quality assured data is a necessity for optimized management of ocean resources and ocean industries. Artificial intelligence (AI) for data analysis and digital twins for optimized operations both heavily depend on high quality data. Join this conference to discuss with the SFI Smart Ocean partners how we can efficiently collect data while securing the required quality.
