Lloyd’s Register unveils first digital register of certified AI systems

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to advance and play a greater role in the maritime sphere, Lloyd’s Register has launched an Artificial Intelligence Register of AI systems and providers that are certified by the classification society. The aim is to provide clear guidance on reliable AI systems, assistance in identifying appropriate providers, and minimising the risks and costs of investing in the specific technology.

Every AI system on the Register will be categorised according to its LR certification status, the classification society explained, such as Digital Twin Ready, Digital Twin Approved, Digital Twin Commissioned, and Digital Twin Live, using the LR ShipRight Digital Compliance framework.

The classification society’s Technology Innovation Manager, Joseph Morelos, commented: “LR’s new AI Register, the first of its kind for the maritime industry, has been designed to help maritime stakeholders find safe and proven providers and solutions, so they can successfully benefit from these technology advances by ultimately improving business outcomes and competitive advantage.”

AI providers already on the Register include Furuno, HAT Analytics, Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering, Samsung Heavy Industries, Hyundai Heavy Industries, and ZhenDui Industrial Artificial Intelligence.
