Through advanced machine learning, best-in-class vessel data, and robust satellite-based analytics, Skylight provides near real-time data visualizations and alerts of maritime activity to aid in the identification of suspicious vessel behavior, including illegal fishing. It’s instrumental in the management of marine protected areas and the enforcement of fishing policies and regulations. Skylight, developed by Vulcan Inc. will become part of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in the fall of 2021. This move will combine world-class research, engineering, product resources and talent to create greater positive impact, as envisioned by the late Paul G. Allen.
