This paper examines existing and breakthrough technologies, such as drones, AI, and blockchains, and the associated challenges and possibilities they pose for ocean management and improving understanding of ecosystems and human interactions with the ocean. It also explores potential markets that could stimulate demand for ocean data and ways public and private players can drive the deployment of these new models.
