Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning digital integration have provided step changes for various industries. Minerals and energy resources industries are rapidly developing these technologies as the industry becomes more digitally connected. The Internet of Things is about the digital integration of the physical workplace with sensors, processing ability, software and other technologies that connect and exchange data.
These technologies are critical for safe, efficient, and automated operations in isolated environments common to minerals and energy resources engineering. Our machine learning works focuses on the integration of AI technologies to industry workflows and discovering opportunities to surpass current physical limits.
Applications include digital core imaging and characterisation, automated seismic and core interpretation, subsurface characterisation, automation, computer vision of materials, data analytics, site monitoring & assessment, inertial measurement units, global navigation satellite systems, wireless communication technologies, and LIDAR 3D laser scanning in underground environments.
