Chinese, US scientists develop AI technology to help detect submarines in uncharted waters

  • Researchers say system should allow them to track any sound-emitting source – from nuclear subs to whales – using a simple listening device mounted on a buoy, underwater drone or ship
  • Breakthrough builds on previous work by team from Beijing and San Diego
