|DESCRIPTION:||Maritime CIO Forum aims helping shipping companies learn new ways to operate their vessels better with digital technology, in pursuit of safety and efficiency. |
SAFETY - Digital tools can support safety and can also detract from it - and sometimes a promising technology does the opposite when it gets used. Although electronic charts were widely dismissed by many, and now broadly accepted as offering big safety advantages.
And we could probably be doing far more to make use of digital technology to support learning.
EFFICIENCY - Crewing costs are not going down, vessel fuel costs are going up, and competitive pressures continue to tighten - ship operators have no relaxation from demands to continue to be more efficient.
Digital technology can help by gathering enormous amounts of data, sending it to shore, and supporting its analysis. But do we end up with large amounts of data no-one can make sense of?
