EXPANDING ACCESS TO DEEP OCEAN EXPLORATION
Assessing and developing global capacity for ocean exploration by all countries. Committed to developing low cost technologies and infrastructure for local communities to build capacity to explore their own deep ocean.
Development of artificial intelligence tools to dramatically accelerate analysis of existing and newly acquired ocean video and imagery.
Low-Cost Ocean Sensors
Investment in the creation and development of low cost deep ocean sensors to accelerate the exploration of the deep ocean.
Founded by deep sea explorer Dr. Katy Croff Bell, the Ocean Discovery League aims to remove barriers to exploration of the deep sea through the development of AI-driven data analysis, low-cost deep sea technologies, and capacity building with historically excluded communities. By creating a suite of low-cost, distributed tools, and supporting a community of explorers around the globe, we would make significantly more progress in understanding our planet than ever before. This will allow us to make wise decisions regarding the use, management, and protection of the ocean, resulting in humankind thriving on earth now and into the future.
