AI meets Nemo
3rd October 2018

A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has unveiled SoFi, a soft robotic fish that can swim independently alongside real fish in the ocean.

In test dives in Fiji, SoFi swam at depths of more than 50ft for up to 40 minutes, handling currents and taking high-resolution photos and videos with a fisheye lens, reports MIT News.

PhD candidate Robert Katzschmann, lead author of the article published in Science Robotics, said:  “We are excited about the possibility of being able to use a system like this to get closer to marine life than humans can get on their own.”
