Three billion people depend on marine biodiversity. However, they are currently eight million tons of plastics floating in the sea. There is even a large plastic island in the middle of the ocean that deteriorates the quality of life of different species of marine fauna.

However, different research centers and startups around the world have focused on developing through technological innovations such as artificial intelligence, machines and proposals that seek to clean and reduce pollution of the oceans.

These are 5 of the innovations in technology at the service of planet earth:

Clearbot Neo:

It is a three-meter-long boat created by the Open Ocean Engineering firm that sails in the sea collecting plastics and garbage by zones, performing movements similar to those performed by cleaning robots.

Its operation consists of networks that are activated when they detect garbage to collect it and then expel it when it is already on dry land. It operates by means of solar panels that provide energy to its batteries to be able to function for long periods of time in the open sea.

This device is capable of identifying and classifying garbage and storing it through two cameras and a built-in artificial intelligence system, in addition to its connectivity with internet networks.

IBM and its big data applied to plankton:

The company plans to launch in 2023 a group of microscopes that work autonomously, collecting information from plankton found in the oceans. to then analyze it as a large block of data and identify the quality of seawater by means of its status.

Ocean machine learning:

A computer research group from the University of Geneva is working on a technology that seeks to collect and analyze microbial DNA as data, taking machine learning processes as a reference. As in the previous case, the plankton will play the role of being the carrier of the information that needs to be collected and decoded through artificial intelligence.

Machine learning is a creation of artificial intelligence that allows machines to learn and improve the processes for which they were created without the need to be programmed.

Cryptocurrencies in exchange for garbage and plastic:

This initiative was created by the Norwegian company Empower that proposes to install on the beaches and docks of different cities, stations where people in exchange for carrying garbage, packaging and plastic, rReceive an amount of fixed-price cryptocurrencies called EPM.

Ocean Clean-up:

Similar to the boat that works as a smart vacuum cleaner, it is a device that is already working in the Pacific Ocean and that as it collects garbage and plastics, it collects information on the waste found to improve its operation and optimize its work.
