Lloyd’s Register (LR) has launched an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Register, a standardised digital register of different AI providers and services that have been certified by the classification society.
The AI Register aims to assist maritime stakeholders in finding appropriate providers and technologies for their specific business challenges, minimising the risk and cost of investing in artificial intelligence.
Each product entered into the AI Register will be categorised against its LR certification status, such as Digital Twin Ready, Digital Twin Approved, Digital Twin Commissioned and Digital Twin Live from LR’s ShipRight Digital Compliance framework. The system will also provide further details about the offerings themselves, such as business benefits, target applications, functions, and performance.
Providers currently listed in the Register include Furuno, HAT Analytics, Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE), Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and ZhenDui Industrial Artificial Intelligence (ZDIAI).
“Recent developments in Artificial Intelligence has meant maritime has seen an increase in different AI applications, yet, there is a lack of information and guidance around these potential solutions and providers, meaning maritime stakeholders run the risk of investing in untested technology,” said Luis Benito, Director of Innovation at LR.
