PLYMOUTH, MA, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Plymouth Foundation and ProMare today announced the initial speaker lineup for the Blue Future Conference 2022, Oct. 24-25, 2022, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Keynoters include Ben Kinnaman, Founder of Greensea Systems and Brett Phaneuf, Founder and CEO of Submergence Group LLC.
Stephen Cole, Director of The Plymouth Foundation for Economic Development sees the potential, “The green-blue economy is more than a buzz phrase. Plymouth is quickly becoming known for marine tech and trade, which includes sectors from aquaculture to AI. The Mayflower Autonomous Ship is an ambassador for the next-generation of things Plymouth will be famous for. And Greensea is a company that sets that tone for what we expect will drive economic growth in our region.”
The conference program features the keynotes as well as general session presentations, and an education and workforce development session to introduce students to the jobs available and education needed to grow the marine economy.
Speakers will explore ways to apply non-traditional data to fisheries assessments, renewable energy and aquaculture siting, cultural heritage, and other marine management applications. Breakout sessions will examine relevant topics, including:
● Ocean Harvest: Aquaculture, Kelp and Other Products from the Sea
● Marine Technology in Practice
● The Blue Workforce
● Marine AI and Machine Learning: Their Role in Augmenting Human Processes
Attendees will also hear from acclaimed underwater photographer and TED Talk speaker Keith Ellenbogen during a special networking event at the end of Day 1. Through his work, Keith seeks to invoke a sense of discovery and create intimate personal connections to inspire social change and a global understanding of the world around us.
