Cover Story (view full-size image): Imaging technologies are being deployed on cabled observatory networks worldwide for the monitoring of the biological activity of deep-sea organisms on unprecedented temporal scales. We propose a new pipeline for the extraction of biological information on the activity status of the iconic conservation species of deep-sea bubblegum coral Paragorgia arborea, based on: image and oceanographic synchronous data collection, image enhancement, supervised tagging of coral areas, CNN automated attribution of polyps’ open/closed status, time-series analysis, and multivariate ANN modeling. We indicate a route for the development of online tools for the real-time processing of multiparametric bio- and oceanographic data sets, which is still missing in the data management structures of most cabled observatories.
