SmartCatch Lands AI Partnership with Google
Bringing intelligence to the edge with Cloud IoT
IoT and Edge Technology
SmartCatch is creating a digital premium in the seafood industry based on artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies. Their first product, DigiCatch, is a ruggedized deep sea data capture device for digitizing commercial fisheries. DigiCatch provides a live video feed from the trawl-net and associated “point of capture” data of the harvest, enabling fishermen to reduce bycatch, fines, fuel usage and waste in the supply chain.
