Adjacent Possibilities for Smart Shipping

This short paper speculates on some of the unexpected outcomes that might arise from the introduction of AI, smart shipping and unmanned vessels. These may include a decreased demand for satellite communication, slower loading and unloading and greater likelihood of port blocking, increased piracy, changes to bulk transport, increased globalisation, the end of unionised ports, damaging effects to some developing economies and redundancy or structural unemployment of management in shipping activities.

On the other hand, there may be a possibility for the use for smart ships such as offshore storage, accommodation and as mobile business headquarters or hospital vessels.
