TOKYO -- Japanese marine shipper Nippon Yusen has opened a facility in the Philippines that monitors ships for breakdowns and disrepair by analyzing real-time data through artificial intelligence.

The monitoring facility is located at a ship crew training center in Manila. Crew members that are on furlough between voyages will be on hand to watch over roughly 200 vessels in transit, mainly those owned by Nippon Yusen.
