Posted by Michelle Howard

ABS, Google Cloud and SoftServe completed a pilot project applying artificial intelligence (AI) models to detect levels of corrosion and coating breakdown on ships and offshore structures.

The project demonstrated the accuracy of AI in detecting and assessing structural anomalies commonly found during visual inspection. AI techniques could be further used to analyze images over time to understand corrosion and coating breakdown trends.

"Digital innovation in AI will change how surveys and maintenance strategies are executed, driving more condition-based approaches to class and maintenance," said ABS Chairman, President and CEO, Christopher J. Wiernicki. "We are building a future in which digital tools can remotely assess the condition of a ship or offshore unit, and automatically detect and measure coating breakdown and other structural issues, improving safety and reliability."
