The role of science, data and technology in saving the ocean

The ocean provides us with oxygen, food, energy, and regulates our climate, but the ocean health is deteriorating fast. To save the ocean we need improved knowledge and new tools, built around comprehensive use of ocean data and technology, such as satellites, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence for near real time data collection, research, monitoring, enforcement and improved decision-making. Fundamental to this is improving our knowledge about the ocean, making that knowledge more readily available and ultimately turning it into concrete solutions.
