ABS, Google Cloud and SoftServe Partner to demonstrate feasibility of AI-enabled corrosion detection on ships and offshore structures

ABS, Google Cloud and SoftServe completed a pilot project applying artificial intelligence (AI) models to detect levels of corrosion and coating breakdown on ships and offshore structures, ABS said in its release.

The project successfully demonstrated the accuracy of AI in detecting and assessing structural anomalies commonly found during visual inspection. AI techniques could be further used to analyze images over time to understand corrosion and coating breakdown trends.
