METIS means "wisdom"

METIS, according to Greek Mythology, means wisdom and denotes the ability to think and to give advice. In Homer’s Odyssey with the adjectives multimode and resourceful, the poet presents us with the basic feature of Ulysses, his intellectual ingenuity and inventive mind. With these properties, he faced all crucial moments and outweighed the obstacles encountered. Such ingenious intellect, in Homer, but also in other writers is called METIS. METIS represents man’s ultimate weapon and his ability to perceive, to evaluate situations and devise the best solution to address the problems. Maritime Efficiency Through Intelligent Systems
