Applications of Artificial Intelligence – New UV Competition

The Computer Science Department recently announced the winner of their UV competition on the Application of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Entrants had to come up with an idea for a new piece of technology that leverages the power of AI and ideas needed to be benchmarked against the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Lily (UV) won the competition with her idea, AquaSentiel, a groundbreaking marine exploration initiative, that employs AI-driven robotic fish blending biomimicry, advanced AI algorithms, and engineering ingenuity. These machines chart the ocean floor, track fish behaviour and collect vital underwater data while aiding local fisheries. They also gather information on rock formations, temperatures, and potential seismic activity depending on the needs of specific locational needs. This data fuels global research on climate change mitigation and disaster preparedness. Funded by affluent nations and operated by fishermen in economically disadvantaged regions, AquaSentiel exemplifies international cooperation for mutual benefit and global progress.

The judges commended the amount of research Lily had done, the innovation used and her excellent presentation. Lily benchmarked her presentation against the two UN goals of ‘life below water’ and ‘decent work and economic growth’.
