Artificial intelligence helps the fishing industry – In recent times, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) has made huge strides in various sectors, and the fishing industry is no different. Programmes such as ChatGPT, Midjourney and Bard have proven to be more than just novelties, becoming valuable tools for improving operations and achieving more targeted goals.
Although the use of AI in the fishing industry is not new, its adoption has been mainly limited to the aquaculture sector. An analysis conducted by CEO and co-founder of ThisFish, Eric Enno Tamm revealed that the majority of investments in this field are in aquaculture. In particular, AI is mainly employed through computer vision technology, which uses machine learning to analyse videos or images in order to optimise aquaculture operations.
Sarah Sanders, co-founder and COO of Native AI, pointed out during the recent Global Seafood Market Conference (GSMC) in Orlando that AI could also bring significant benefits to the fish industry, especially through natural language processing (NLP). NLP, similar to that used by ChatGPT, is a powerful tool capable of analysing text efficiently and comprehensively, allowing it to extract useful information such as sentiment, frequency of certain phrases and more.
Sanders explained that language models can be trained quickly to analyse large amounts of data. During the GSMC, Native AI used NLP to analyse over 20,000 public reviews of seafood products from major US retailers such as Costco Wholesale, Albertsons, Sam’s Club and others. This analysis identified key issues and common consumer perceptions, providing valuable insights for companies in the industry.
Artificial intelligence is revolutionising the fishing industry, offering new opportunities to optimise operations, improve product quality and meet consumer needs more effectively. However, it is also important to address the challenges associated with the adoption of this technology, such as data management and consumer privacy, in order to maximise its benefits.
