The Deepwater Systems startup from Ecuador introduced a project using artificial intelligence technologies and a distributed registry to search for underwater treasures and wrecks, Forklog reports with reference to the company's
"The largest marine treasury is the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and the so-called" Golden Triangle of Treasures. " Without taking into account the value of historical relics, the value of sunken treasures is estimated at trillions of dollars, "the press service of Deepwater Systems cites the portal.
But despite the fact that the search and raising of treasures are very attractive for investors and businessmen, the development of this profitable business continues "Skidding" because of outdated methods of conducting deep-sea research. Often people searching for wrecks continue to rely not on modern methods, but on theories, legends, outdated historical references or luck. Instead of these proven, but not always effective ways, Deepwater Systems proposes the use of unmanned underwater vehicles, detachment and artificial intelligence.
The technology, created by the specialists of the startup, allows to analyze with great accuracy the data obtained from underwater unmanned gliders. Neuronet independently learns, eventually gaining the ability to better recognize submarine objects with almost 100% accuracy. The company plans to sell the information available, because the exact coordinates with the deposits of jewelry and other underwater values can cost a lot of money.
Gliders are clever enough to avoid collisions with each other or to leave in case of danger. In addition, all data received by unmanned aircraft is supposed to be stored in an orderly manner in a system created on the basis of distributed registry technology – this will avoid losing or substituting data.
