Nomad Partners with NOAA to Solve Maritime Video Challenges

Nomad is excited to announce it was invited by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)to present its live-video management platform at the NOAA Environmental Data Management Workshop, in August 2021, and to the NOAA Fisheries Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), on September 15, 2021.

Nomad founder and Chief Architect Adam Miller’s presentation, “Vision for next generation content curation, analysis and dissemination for underwater science video using AI and cloud technologies,” addressed a business challenge confronting maritime scientists and live broadcast management.

NOAA conducts multiple oceanographic ship-based scientific missions per year that investigate the ocean floor using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Currently, live-video streams that ROV units capture during a mission can only be viewed by ship-based scientists in real-time. The transfer of recorded ROV files to shore-based locations for post-live viewing is not centralized, time-delayed, and does not include rich annotated data captured during the ROV recording.

Built native in the Amazon Web Service cloud, the Nomad platform would enable AI to capture moments of scene detection and archive video content while providing scientists with the ability to perform intelligent searches and scientific analysis.

During the presentation, Miller also introduced an opportunity to combine public gamification with artificial intelligence (AI). Gamification is the process of turning task-oriented work into a game, and encouraging large public participation such as schools, academies, maritime hobbyists, and youth organizations to help with those tasks. Using AI to do the heavy lifting of scene and object detection, the public would then be enlisted to help identify the objects that were first detected by AI and, therefore, giving scientists the opportunity to focus on scientific research instead of time-consuming tasks of reviewing long stretches of empty video recordings.
