Opinion Piloting, Autonomous Vessels, AI, and the coffee making machine

However, during the last couple of years I have done my best to catch up with technology, since it has enhanced our possibilities and improved safety in our field. But still, I have to admit that I am way behind the new guys in this important issue.
