Topic: Intelligent Shipping Perception Based on Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision

Abstract: Intelligent shipping is a key point of transportation power, maritime power, and manufacturing power. Intelligent vehicle/port/ship driving environment perception based on computer vision, artificial intelligence, and deep learning has become a research focus in the field. This talk mainly focuses on the extraction and analysis of the trajectories of people, vehicles, and ships in automated terminal and intelligent ship scenarios, using artificial intelligence, deep learning, computer vision, and other methods to carry out vehicle/vessel/people detection, tracking and identification from the low-visibility, high-interference, and complex shipping environment, as well as to discriminate and analyze the motion behaviors of related objects.
