AI & Seabed Mapping Project Recognized

awards, following the co-development of an AI solution aimed to improve the speed and ease of real-time seabed mapping.GeoAcoustics, a manufacturer of sonar equipment for seabed mapping, approached UEA’s School of Computing Sciences, and feasibility study was first undertaken to see if AI technology could automatically remove unwanted noise from sonar data. This was carried out by two MSc Computing Science students, supervised by Dr. Wenjia Wang and Dr. Ben Milner, and a team from GeoAcoustics.Following encouraging results, further R&D grants were awarded; an Enabling Innovation: Research
