The CityShark Project – How drones and Oracle Cloud aid cleaning up the oceans
June 10 @ 10:00 - 10:45
Join this webinar and hear Martin Skjold Grøntved, Special Consultant at the “Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency (SDFE) – Office for Data and Green Transition Technologies” present this exciting project in a live interview with Ingrid Mjøen, Country Manager at Oracle Danmark.
As aerial drones fly over oil spills, trash deposits, and other floating debris in the Danish deep-sea port, they send signals to sailing drones below, instructing them to clean up the waste and deliver it to a nearby sanitation facility. This leads to a highly scalable solution that can be exported globally and help keep plastic and oils out of the oceans to protect the life below water. Using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) high-performance computing (HPC), waste is identified and collected in public waterways, helping to provide a cleaner environment.
Cleaning up oceans, harbors, and rivers can take a lot of time, require a ton of effort, and cost a lot of money, so efforts like CityShark are testing the use of drone imaging, AI analytics, and high-performance cloud (HPC) computing to help the process. With OCI HPC, they can survey the entire harbor, process the images, and complete their analysis in a single flight.
