Ocean of Opportunities

A Shipping and Logistics Innovation Challenge

About this Accelerator

Ocean of Opportunities is a shipping and logistics innovation challenge that has been running for the third year in a row. This year, we are taking a closer look at Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for potential applications in the world of shipping. Participate in our AI track, present your cutting edge solutions to our corporate partners and win the opportunity to conduct a trial with them. We are definitely not neglecting other forms of technology but applications for General track must be submitted at this form instead :

Hearing from our corporate partners, the following are the challenges they are interested to solve using data and AI: 
1. Schedule reliability prediction using publicly available data - How can we make use of publicly available data to improve predictions in arrival times of liners?
2. Dynamic pricing based on all determinant factors - With short historical data and non-digital determinant factors, can we still adopt dynamic pricing?
3. Identification of high risk vessels based on open source intelligence - How can we gather enough information from open sourced intelligence to have a good oversight on the conditions of charter vessels?
