The Mayflower Autonomous Ship – Retracing a 400-Year old Voyage, with A.I.

🚢  A fully autonomous ship will soon retrace the path of a 400-year-old journey from the United Kingdom to the United States.

The new AI-updated version of the Mayflower, with zero passengers and crew members, will take approximately two weeks to cross the Atlantic.

As the BBC reports, the AI-powered vessel will make its own decisions on the best course to take and which routes to avoid.

The ship will test ocean samples as it crosses the Atlantic in order to help understand microplastics and their origin, distribution, and potential impact.
