Bosphorus will be free of plastic bags, bottles and other debris

Let's zoom into 2030: humans and robots have become an unbeatable cleanup team, making oceans sparkle again by wiping out a huge garbage patch in the Atlantic Ocean. Imagine the city of Istanbul, where the mighty Bosphorus that slices through the city is no longer choked with plastic bags, bottles, and other debris. It’s got its beautiful, shimmering blue back, all thanks to a special robot named Whaley.

 

Whaley isn’t just any robot. It’s a massive, friendly robot whale, gently gliding through the waters of the Bosphorus, sucking in all the nasty garbage into its belly, while also being super careful not to harm any fish or plants in the water. Kids on the ferry wave excitedly as they watch Whaley, the ocean’s vacuum cleaner, in action – its big, googly eyes and whale-tail splashing as it moves along.

 

Meanwhile, the AI, which is like Whaley's intelligence and control center, watches over the entire ocean like a protective parent. It can immediately spot if a suspicious boat is trying to sneakily dump trash or fish where it's not allowed. It can alert the coast guard, who then swoop in to stop the bad guys before they can do more harm.

 

Now, envision the AI spotting a family of playful dolphins near Whaley. It swiftly tells Whaley to change its path, ensuring the robot whale doesn’t disturb the dolphins’ fun day out.

 

In places like the Bosphorus, people can now enjoy peaceful ferry rides or leisurely walks along the banks, with no garbage in sight. Whaley becomes not just a cleaning robot but a symbol of hope, teaching us that we can undo the damage and live in a world where technology and humanity come together for good.

bulent TEKER it s an utopic dream even with the techonology of 30's. Cleaning of whole bosphorus must start with common mind about not to throw garbages into the sea. İf we assume 25 m population in 30's, a proactive cleaning will not be a solution.
