Enable accurate, rapid processing of underwater visual data through a globally integrated network that can accelerate ocean discovery, inform all sectors of the Blue Economy, and lead to effective marine stewardship.
Ocean Vision AI (OVAI) is building networks of programmers, marine scientists, and enthusiasts all working toward a common goal: understanding life in the ocean.
The ocean represents the largest habitable ecosystem on our planet, yet less than five percent of that volume has been explored and nearly half of all marine life is yet to be described. Underwater imaging is a powerful sensing modality that can address this knowledge gap. However, as more visual data is collected, the ocean research community faces a growing analysis backlog.
OVAI connects machine learning data analysis with a spectrum of users, from experts to enthusiasts, to analyze ocean imagery. To achieve this goal, we’re developing three core solutions—Portal, FathomNet, and FathomVerse—that combine state-of-the-art technology and community power to build an unprecedented resource for the ocean.
