Full Ship Automation: Yay or Nay?


"Forewarned is forearmed. Full ship automation is possible in the near future since companies are pouring money for research and development to make this a reality. Hence, Filipino seafarers should brace for more challenging days ahead. With regards to closing the door on seafarers jobs, I believe it will open to other maritime opportunities for Filipinos. The Commission on Higher Education, higher educational institutions, Maritime Industry Authority and other concerned authorities should proactively think of full ship automation scenario and adapt the necessary changes to meet the needed workforce for this. It is also possible to retrain the displaced seafarers, just like when radio officers were removed during the implementation of GMDSS.
