My name is Steven Duinker, I am 20 years old and currently in the third year of my study Maritime Officer as Engineer. Since I was young, I was already interested in sailing and the sea. Therefore, this study perfectly fits in that picture. Even though some say the sailing-profession is losing its romantic side, we cannot deny that the maritime sector is rapidly changing. This change has innovation and sustainability as its prime movers, and is very interesting for young professionals to participate in. When I am finished with my current study, I want to specialize in this direction.
Last year Gerard Kruisheer lead the development in the UAE of SaferTrident, world's only Semi Autonomous Vehicle (SAV) for Professional Divers. This year he Co-founded Captain AI to solve Autonomous Navigation for ships. His interest in this area of engineering was first stoked while studying Marine Science at the University of Hawaii (UH). During his studies he worked on a team to develop a Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). He went onto work as a lab assistant at the Spatial Data Analysis and Visualization Lab (SDAV ). It is during his time at SDAV that he gained exposure to machine vision and marine data capture systems.
