The 6th Monthly Tutorial was held on October 8th (SUN) at Ettcyujima campus, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology. The theme was on “What Value Should We Protect in the Age of Automation?” 19 participants joined the tutorial.  
 First, Mr. Wataru Kenjo, Master Student of Keio University, reviewed the 5th Monthly Tutorial “Will Artificial Intelligence exceed the learning of human?” Next, Associate Professor Nobuaki Kubo, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology gave a lecture on "Performance Analysis of low-cost RTK-GNSS." The contents were mainly separated into 3 parts, (1) Raw GNSS measurements from Smartphone, (2) Correction message from QZSS and (3) Multi-GNSS Performance: u-blox vs. Trimble.
 Followed was a lecture from Mrs. Keiko Miyazaki, Knowledge System Research Division, National Maritime Research Institute. The title was “Towards Automatic Ship –Domestic Research and Foreign Projects-.” Not only did she introduce R&D projects of EU (ex. England, Finland and Norway), US and China but also of that in Japan which initially was launched in 1982. The R&D project progressed from highly reliable intelligent ship project (feasibility study and demonstration of unmanned automated ship), modernized coastal ship project (development of actual advanced ships enabling one person bridge operation), Super Eco Ship (SES) project (development of labor saving and integrated navigation support systems, and fleet support systems) to the development of the technical concept of the autonomous maritime transportation system. Japan is behind the global competition but Japan’s strength is having all companies related to shipping and offshore industry domestically, she mentioned. 
 After the lecture, students prepared for a 5-min presentation for the G-SPASE program mid-term symposium held on October 13th (FRI) 13:00-17:30 at Innovation Hall, National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan). In the end, there was a follow up on the competency evaluation.
