Norwegian oil exploration company Aker BP has entered into a partnership with global industrial artificial intelligence firm Cognite to explore the potential of robotics in the offshore oil and gas sector.
Throughout 2020 the two companies will perform tests using robots and drones on the Skarv installation in the Norwegian Sea.
