Harnessing Data and Tech for Ocean Health and Sustainability
About This Video
In this Tech Vision Talk, Fiorenza Micheli discusses that with climate change causing upheavals in ocean ecosystems, growing demand for food from the sea, overexploitation of natural and cultural resources more powerful tools for ocean exploration, stewardship, and sustainability are urgently needed. Advances in data and technology offer unprecedented potential to expand capacity to track and understand ocean change and uses, to transform data streams into useful and usable information, and make it accessible to users and decision-makers. This potential and the urgent need are illustrated through examples on tracking ocean uses globally and blue foods.
