What is Scale doing for the Port of Ponce?

Scale is building a Smart Port Lab where AI-enabled infrastructure will be researched, built, and exported to shipping ports globally. The Smart Port Lab will feature autonomous inspection systems, container identification and tracking, AI-powered document processing, drive-by-wire cranes and bomb carts, and advanced surveillance.

Why the Port of Ponce?

The Port of Ponce was recently hit by a series of natural disasters, including the 2020 earthquakes, Hurricane Maria, and, most recently, Hurricane Fiona. Scale’s investment to establish a Smart Port Lab at Port Ponce is an opportunity to bring global shipping and logistics customers to the local area, increase port activity, and aid in the economic revitalization of the city of Ponce.

How will Scale build the Smart Port?

Scale is partnering with the Ponce Port Authority and investing more than $2 million to transform the Port of Ponce from a FEMA designated disaster site to a Smart Port Lab. AI-enabled Smart Port infrastructure and technology augments workers’ capabilities, enhances operational processes at the port, and modernizes shipping and transportation equipment where innovation has traditionally been stagnant.

I welcome Scale AI’s investment in Puerto Rico…the integration of digital and artificial intelligence solutions will be key for the creation of jobs and economic development in the south of Puerto Rico.

Pedro R. Pierluisi

Governor, Puerto Rico

Artificial intelligence will undoubtedly help streamline shipping and logistics processes, resulting in greater economic activity for Ponce, job creation, and new opportunities to attract foreign capital.

Manuel Cidre

Secretary of the Department of Economic Development and Commerce, Puerto Rico

The Smart Port Lab from Scale AI is poised to be a game-changer for economic development in Puerto Rico. This initiative will help Ponce become a critical hub for inbound and outbound logistics by creating a cutting-edge AI-enabled facility, enhancing Puerto Rico’s competitiveness and ability to attract more business and investment to the region.

Ella Woger-Nieves

CEO, Invest Puerto Rico

I am thrilled to welcome Scale AI to Puerto Rico. This investment of $2 million represents a groundbreaking opportunity to innovate and to transform the Port of Ponce from a FEMA disaster site, to a world-class Smart Port.

HOW THE PORT WILL OPERATE

AI to Automate and Augment Your Operations

Scale’s Smart Port Lab at the Port of Ponce will include AI-enabled technology to improve every facet of port operations. Aerial drones and other sensors will identify new containers and track them as they progress through the port, while drive-by-wire cranes and bomb carts improve operational efficiency, and containers are stacked efficiently with Scale’s AI-assisted logic

Why Scale

Trusted by Leading Automotive Companies

Automotive leaders work with Scale for building autonomy for the following reasons:

Sure-Fire Improvements

Data is the sure-fire way to improve your models. With every larger/higher quality/more diverse dataset, Scale helps your machine learning models improve.

Maximum Performance

All the components of the Scale Data Engine maximize the value of each annotated label to improve model performance.

Faster Development

Scale accelerates the data engine loop - improving labeling speed, curating optimal datasets, and scaling up the workforce to drive faster development of AI applications.

Thanks to companies like Scale, a lot of these SaaS tools are building intelligent capabilities into their products[...] that’s a path for a lot of companies to get value from AI without becoming AI shops, which is a really formidable challenge

Bret Taylor

Retired President & COO, Salesforce

Scale has a great focus on helping companies improve the quality of their data and the usability of their data. Scale has seen so many different applications of AI across so many different kinds of companies. I think it’s well positioned to help a company assess where it is, what’s the state of its data, what’s the state of its systems, and what kind of capability and preparedness to use sophisticated algorithms.

SMART PORT LAB

How Scale is Building the Smart Port Lab in Ponce

Legacy ports are inefficient, expensive to run, and can be challenging work environments for employees. With Scale’s Smart Port solutions, we bring the power of AI to help you reduce your costs, increase your throughput, and improve the working environment.

Autonomous Inspection System

Scale’s autonomous inspection system automatically deploys and operates, minimizing hardware downtime and accelerating container inspection. Scales advanced computer vision models ensure fast and accurate inspections.

Digital Receipt Registry

Every stage of container movements is documented using camera systems and computer vision, OCR, and custom logic. The Digital Receipt Registry confirms and verifies container movements, allowing ports to improve throughput, cut down on inventory discrepancies, and reduce insurance costs.

Level 1 Hardware Autonomy Kit

Scale’s level 1 autonomy kits enable operators so they can maneuver STS, gantry cranes, and bomb carts from remote locations with the assistance of additional sensors, cameras, and augmented reality annotations to safely increase productivity.

Computer Vision (CV)-Assisted Surveillance

Scale’s CV-assisted surveillance provides automated detection and tracking of every person, vehicle, and piece of equipment on your port.
