Expert Forum: Digitalisation in the Raw Materials Sector
20 - 22 January 2020
Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Augmented & Virtual Reality and Data Integration in the Raw Materials Sector
Exploration, mining and mineral processing involves the collection and analysis of vast quantities of data from various scales of observation and over variable timeframes. As the digitalisation of the sector is progressing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) and data integration solutions are increasingly being used to collect, analyse and manage data and to visualize content in real-time in variable contexts. AI, ML, DL, AR, VR and data integration are thus the topics of the first Expert Forum of the Sustainable Discovery and Supply Lighthouse.
The Expert Forum on Digitalisation in the Raw Materials Sector, co-organised with our partner Montanuniversität Leoben, is aimed at raw materials industry stakeholders and experts actively researching, developing and employing digital solutions in exploration, mining and mineral processing (aligning with the strategic outlook of the Lighthouse Sustainable Discovery and Supply) – from universities, research & technology organisations, major companies, SMEs and start-ups. The Expert Forum will be an excellent opportunity to meet key stakeholders to discuss common development successes and challenges as well as to learn from each other’s successes and failures to devise new smart solutions.
Optionally, on 22 January, participants can take part in technical site visits to:
- AT+S Austria: Producer of printed circuit boards
- VA Erzberg GmbH: Processing plant of iron ore mine or truck monitoring and control system
- Sandvik Mining: Underground mining machines
Registration for the Expert Forum is now open!
