A specific issue in this field is AIS where European consortium JRC (Joint Research Center) is trying to determine whether or not a shortage of AIS message represents an alerting situation. In other words, whether it is due to cheating or accidental technical events. In this context, artificial intelligence could be used by a FMC system trying to learn from multiple past examples to draw a pattern, technically backed on Received Signal Strength available at the AIS Base Station. Some FMCs already use artificial intelligence for cross-checking data received on the vessels' course and their coherence seen with respect to the declared activity.
