The 4th Industrial Revolution is taking place, bringing exponential changes to the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is marked by emerging technology breakthroughs in many fields. Contrary to common belief that shipping operates in a traditional model, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have forced even this ‘old-fashioned’ industry to embrace innovation and show no resist to this revolution.

13:00 GMT / 15:00 ATH / 21:00 SGT

Shipping has shown an increased interest in blockchain, AI, VR, IoT and other revolutionary technologies over the last years. However, these remain unfamiliar for the shipping industry. It is about time for the industry to consider their potential efficiencies and benefits in order such gamechanger technologies to become more pervasive and help shipping’s digital transformation.

Every business and every individual can be subject to cyber threats. Cyber-crime is a massive business; hackers are very well-organized, and they put a lot of time and effort before launching a cyber-attack. The last couple years, cyber security has become a significant challenge for the maritime industry as well. From January 1st of January 2021, a new era has begun for ship operators as SMS now feature cyber security.

Panel #4 E-Navigation & Future of Maritime Safety
11:00 GMT / 13:00 ATH / 19:00 SGT

In today’s smart environment, e-navigation remains a controversial subject of discussion, with some supporting that its aim is to assist operations, while others believe that seafarers may find it difficult to trust an autonomous system. ECDIS is one example to this; although it considered as a key milestone that helped the industry to move forward with navigational safety, it comes with challenges while many agree that it transformed ship bridges into cockpits.

Panel #5 Human Factors in the Smart Shipping Era
13:00 GMT / 15:00 ATH / 21:00 SGT

IACS has recognized the importance of the human element in terms of training for new technologies mariners will be using onboard. The fundamental aspects are usability of systems and the competence of people. Certainly, there needs to be a balance between the two across the whole ship and systems lifecycle. To make the ship usable in terms of safety and efficiency, industry must take a human-centred approach to user needs and involve them in the design of systems.

Harmonizing the Human Factor: key challenges
Impact of smart shipping on seafarers
Future skills and training for future smart applications
Digital applications bring many distractions to seafarers: Enhancing situational awareness
Over reliance to technology: Minimizing human error in the smart shipping era

Panel #6 Remote Surveys & Inspections
15:00 GMT / 17:00 ATH / 23:00 SGT

The COVID-19 pandemic forcefully shown the importance of digitalization and new technologies within the shipping industry, with remote surveys taking place and becoming the new trend. Remote surveys and inspections mean that surveyors do not have to be physically present on board a vessel, however it is expected the level of assurance coming from a remote survey to be equivalent.

Lessons learned from remote survey & inspections so far
Need to consider best practices/ regulatory update?
Physical vs Remote surveys and inspections: Similarities and differences
