How to use artificial intelligence to solve complex problems!

I was delighted to return to the Plymouth Marine Laboratory to give a talk on artificial intelligence. I first went there in 1994 to work as a computer programmer and that is where I learned about research from Jim Aiken, whom you see in the photograph with me.

Jim is an extraordinary oceanographer and the head of programmes such as Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT), working with him was a great honour and an unforgettable experience. For more than five years we worked together on projects such as ORKA and KBOS, along with other researchers, including Nigel Rees.

The PML strives to integrate Artificial Intelligence techniques in its research and we are going to work on this together in some of the projects.


The AMT3 left the port of Grimsby (UK) for Montevideo (Uruguay) and finally arrived at Stanley (Falkland Islands or Islas Malvinas).

It is a privilege for me to work in this field again and I know we can achieve great things with today’s technology!

Here are some recent photos along with those from the AMT cruise to the South Pole on the James Clark Ross Icebreaker, together with my bosses Jim and Nigel.
