Legacy regulation is facing the bureaucratic singularity, but the digital age also offers an unprecedented opportunity. Regvolution is coming, and it’s going to be transformational, says K D Adamson.
It’s where the adventure always starts. Where the magic begins. If you can’t get onto the platform then you’re going to get left behind, says K D Adamson.
The scale of shipping’s problems may be big, but the solution is far bigger. Because shipping isn’t a noun these days. It’s a verb.
If you’re worrying about COP21, then you can stop. Shipping isn’t likely to cause that level of pollution by 2050. But there’s a reason for that. It’s called the new Seaconomics. And it’s something you probably should worry about.
The world is in flux, so it’s no surprise innovation is a top priority. Or is it? Shipping’s customers are crying out for a Model-T, but are we just delivering a faster horse?
The SmartShip’s autonomy will actually drive convergence, forging the new blue logistics chain as part of the intelligent transport systems of the future.
Brand and PR is giving way to culture and purpose. So shipping doesn’t need to get better at PR and branding, it just needs to get better, and cognitive diversity is at the heart of that.
Everyone’s looking to make the ‘right’ choice about fuel. But there is no silver bullet. The fuel of the future probably hasn’t shown up yet, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of scope for change.
Technology is disrupting risk, and it will both change and make maritime fortunes in the process.
The devil may take the hindmost, but cyber-criminals are taking everyone, and shipping looks like easy prey. We need a new security paradigm, and setting it isn’t IT’s job. It’s yours.

It’s connectivity and computing, it’s bringing community to commerce, it can deliver communication, collaboration and creativity, and for shipping it could mean the difference between competitiveness, and crisis, it is…the cloud
The current analysis of shipping’s future is flawed in two crucial respects; firstly because the technological future is – at least partly – foreseeable; and secondly, because it offers as many opportunities as it does threats.
