Artificial Intelligence for A Digital Blue Planet is a three-day global forum (28–30 June 2021) organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), that brought together data scientists, analysts and researchers from marine research institutions and universities around the world to share their knowledge, skills and innovative ideas while discussing ways AI could help promote the use of knowledge to improve the management of our aquatic ecosystems.

The FAO AI4DBP event presented a broad update on the use and challenges of AI in fisheries and aquaculture. The focus was on supporting operations, and thus many species related applications, such as species identification and classification were demonstrated. Blue-Cloud representative Anton Ellenbroek (NFISI) mentioned the use of AI in (bio)image analysis, essential ocean variable, and land-use classification. 

The Information and knowledge management Team of the Fisheries Division at FAO is involved in two of the Blue-Cloud demonstrators, please follow these links to learn more: Fish, a matter of scales; Aquaculture Monitor.
