The 24th TFMS Forum in Japan
November 15th, 2017



Technology Engagement with You

Last autumn, we held the 23rd TFMS Forum; last year’s forum theme was “Navigate to a New Era with You”. We shared information and had the opportunity to exchange opinions about the improvement of forecast accuracy of weather and marine phenomena. This years Forum will explain how Weathernews is entering the New Era of optimum ship operation using the latest technologies such as AI and Big Data. Autonomous ships are becoming a reality; the time has come to utilize AI more extensively. Weathernews would like to discuss with you “technological innovations” for the future of the maritime sector; with new technologies in freight transportation to enable the best possible cooperation between the ship and the shoreside operations.
