“Contemporary Challenges and Opportunities in Artificial Intelligence, IoT, and Maritime Industry: A Seminar on Advancing Innovation and Knowledge”
On Monday, October 16, 2023, at the Conference Hall of the University of Piraeus, the Knowledge and Innovation Community successfully hosted a workshop with the theme ‘Modern Challenges and Opportunities in Artificial Intelligence, IoT, and Maritime Industry: A Seminar on Advancing Innovation and Knowledge.’ The event was attended by industry professionals, academic faculty, and postgraduate students.
The workshop aimed to inform the audience about the advancements in IoT and Artificial Intelligence technologies and to promote the digital product developed by the Knowledge and Innovation Community, ‘Predictive Maintenance for Preventing Ship Equipment Failures.’ This digital tool is designed to analyze data streams collected from sensors, with a focus on predicting, diagnosing, and preventing potential malfunctions in the mechanical equipment of ships, particularly the engines.
Following the participants arrivals and registrations, welcoming remarks were delivered by Professor Angelo Kotios, the head of the Department of International and European Studies, Mr. Demosthenis Kyriazis, the Vice-Rector for Research and Lifelong Learning and Economics, and Associate Professor George Galanos from the Department of International and European Studies.”
This was followed by three presentations:
