Drones and AI Ward Off Shark Attacks as Predators Hunt Closer to Shore

By Olivia Carville

Australian technology designed to avoid killing the animals arrives amid warming oceans that make human-shark interaction more likely. 

Can technology protect you from the jaws of a one-ton great white shark?

Several Australian tech startups say yes. They’re using artificial intelligence, drones and electric force fields to try and prevent sharks from eating human bathers.

Officials in the U.S. are watching the technological advancements keenly, aware that climate change is altering shark migration patterns and threatening to push great whites ever closer to U.S. shores. This summer, sharks have attacked teenagers on beaches from California to New York.

Drones and the Job Sites of the Future

BIM integration, automated safety reports, and AI-fueled maps are just a few of the reasons UAVs are set to revolutionize the construction industry

Imagine this: you get to work on Monday and a drone-generated job site report is waiting for you. While you were at home eating breakfast, your drone completed an automated site safety check, gathered data on your project’s progress, and assessed the work you need to do to stay on track.

Sound too good to be true? Nope.

This is the future of the construction job site, and it’s not as far away as you might think. For many construction companies, drones have become an integral tool for gathering site data and making informed decisions. And, with advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence on the horizon, drones are poised to completely revolutionize the construction industry in 2018 and beyond.
