Japan's fish farmers deploy AI and drones to feed hungry world

NEC, KDDI and Sharp bring high-tech solutions to traditional industry

NEC is testing a system that uses video cameras and AI to measure the size of fish, so farmers can better plan their feeding.

TOKYO -- Japanese fish farmers are turning to drones, artificial intelligence and cloud computing to cut costs and improve operations as demand for seafood continues to soar.

Farmed seafood is expected to become even more important as wild catches dwindle due to overfishing. More efficient farming operations will be crucial to keep up with growing demand, particularly in a country where the population is aging and the workforce is shrinking.
