SEAMEO BIOTROP presented Prof Ir Indra Jaya, MSc, PhD, in its 4th 2019 Quarterly Public Seminar, held on 21 November 2019 at its Campus in Bogor, to talk over the importance of implementing advanced technology to optimise the sustainable utilisation of marine and fisheries natural resources. The topic also addressed fisheries as one of Indonesia’s food security main pillars. A total of 30 participants from various Indonesian research institutions, private companies and universities joined this activity.

During the seminar, Prof Ir Indra Jaya highlighted the significance of using a cyber-physical system (CPS) to better explore the sea biodiversity in the various depth of water. CPS refers to all technologies enabling computerized resources and physical objects to interact together in a coordinated, reliable and continuous manner for performing multiple given tasks.

“The technology development follows the development of the industry. During the Industrial Revolution (IR) 3.0, digital technology and programme/coding started to develop, including the use of sonar and radar. Meanwhile, in IR 4.0, CPS is introduced, which brings more practical work because of its integrated system,” said Prof Indra Jaya.
He furthermore explained that CPS is a system controlled or monitored by computer-based algorithms. For fisheries and marine purposes, some of its technologies, namely wireless coastal and small islands network buoys, underwater televisual system (UTS), autonomous system and artificial intelligence (AI), are used. Wireless coastal and small islands network buoys are useful for obtaining data in signal-lacked areas, including remote islands. Underwater vegetation and coral reef ecosystem monitoring and evaluation could be conducted using UTS, while the autonomous system is helpful in mapping and classifying the bottom of the waters including seagrass beds.

In terms of AI, Prof Indra Jaya said that it is commonly used for identification and classification of fishing patterns, optimisation of fishing operation, and fish position tracking, which leads to time and fuel efficiency. In fish cultivation, AI could help farmers to save feeds by estimating fish length. It could also be used for species identification as an indicator of coral reef health.

Ending his lecture, Prof Indra Jaya emphasised that people have to conserve and at the same time, sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development as stated in the Sustainable Development Goal No.14.

Prof Ir Indra Jaya, MSc, PhD, is a well-recognised expert in underwater acoustics and ocean instrumentation from the Marine and Fisheries Faculty of IPB University. He has produced more than 20 innovations, where 12 of which were selected as Indonesia's most prospective innovations by the Business Innovation Center (BIC) and Indonesia’s Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Kemenristekdikti) (2009-2018).

Prof Indra Jaya is also the Chairperson of the National Fish Resources Assessment Commission for 2017-2019 period. Currently, he actively acts as an assessor member of BAN-PT (2004-present) and joins Indonesian Fisheries Bachelor Association (ISPIKANI) and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering, Instrumentation and Measurement, Automation and Robotics Society.
