Automatic Catch Analysis System

So now we are going to talk about more AI. And tell you about more AI. How does AI involve this SMARTFISH 2020. It’s always automatic catch analysis system. So this is a machine vision with AI system for detection of catch composition. And we want to know, we want to see what kind of fish we get is more like we get more than one kind right? We have tens or hundreds or thousands or more than that. We want to know what the composition of that. And with that, we can do a lot of things We can um… We…Of course. Before that, they had highly detailed capture data. We can send it real-time to land.
And we can also use this data to do the decision support for fisheries management. And we can also do the real-time environment monitoring. And we can do real-time fishery management. Remember the keyword here is called real-time. We do it right away. OK? So before we can use this system. Before we can put this system into work. It’s really amazing. I mean for me this is amazing. How a computer can identify what kind of fish. Because you know in ocean, this is a very chaos environment. Fish. They just swim around different angle and different…lining is different. How do you… How dose AI system know what kind of fish it is? OK? So it really start from researchers or engineers or scientists.
They provide a lot of pictures. I mean a lot. We need large amount of data. For training algorithm, we need to tell that…ok, this is… I really don’t want to get in details like yellow fish, red fish. Whatever. We need a lot of data, a lot of picture to train our artificial intelligence system. That is the “brain”. That is the heart. That is the core of this system. Because with that come by with machine vision which is just like a CCD Camera. This kind of things… Um… so the two things combined together. What they can do is they can give you something that would not be possible in the past. Well. For example will have… in real time…
Remeber the keyword here. The real time environment monitoring And we can do a real-time fishery management. And that… the core. The really important thing is we can do the detection of the catch composition. That is really something, right? I mean just think about it. Every time you put that into the ocean. Now you have eye. Actually you have more than one eye. You can have as many as you want. You can do a real time. He can see the composition. You can send the data in land to do the analysis. This a lot of things. A lot of works can be done. Of course this is not easy. I mean the scientist engineer they have to train the AI algorithm.
It is not easy. But once it’s get done. It is so powerful a AI data tool that can be used in ocean.

Next, Prof. Wu will explain Automatic Catch Analysis System. How does AI involve in SMARTFISH H2020?

In the previous step, we have talked about the data collected for resource control. Using AI we can some benefits:

  • Provide more precise and targeted fishing.
  • Providing decision support for fisheries management.
  • Real-time environmental monitoring and fisheries management

So this is the big picture of what AI in SMARTFISH H2020.
