九州十年信誉:求是海洋学术论坛2023年13期（总29期）——Global Marine Technology Trends, Drivers and Challenges
三、主讲人：英国斯特莱斯克莱德大学 Atilla Incecik教授
四、报告题目：Global Marine Technology Trends, Drivers and Challenges
Growth in waterborne transportation and trade will be driven as the world population increases due to demand for food, water, energy and technological products. With massive growth in computational capacity and data storage capabilities, globally accessible networks and cloud infrastructure, availability of smart devises and smart and cheap sensors, a significant increase of digitalization and automation in all waterborne sectors is taking place. This talk will aim at presenting the expected impacts on waterborne transport of increasing population, economic growth, energy demand and supply, climate change, decarbonisation, digitalization and automation and the research in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde to address these impacts. The presentation will be concluded by emphasizing the importance of training and upskilling of naval architects, ocean and marine engineers as well as seafarers to meet the challenges summarized above.
