Panel Battle #1: Digital navigation vs e-Navigation. 10:30-11:30, Osaka Hall

Is the e-Navigation concept already outdated, even before its implementation? Should we talk about full-scale digital transformation of the maritime shipping and logistics as the real business demand driving the industry changes? Discover how “maritime Ubers” can crash traditional freight business, how Big Data will change the operations, and is there the real benefit behind technologies hype?

Panel Battle #2: Why don't unmanned ships sail? 11:30-12:30, Osaka Hall

The remote and autonomous shipping enthusiasts promise huge cost reduction and safety improvement, the first remote shipping trials are ongoing, IMO has started to consider relevant regulation – but do we really require, and are we ready for, unmanned shipping? Look at the real unmanned technologies implemented on the sea and discuss together with experts their potential benefits and barriers.
