AIM 2019 – Artificial Intelligence in Mining Forum

Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) is partnering with CIM to host the AI in Mining Forum in Montreal on May 1, in conjunction with the 2019 CIM Convention. AI has fast become recognized as an opportunity to harness new technology for operational efficiency, but there remains a lot of confusion, or questions, around it. How can mining companies use AI to improve their operations? Are they ready? Do they have the data as required? What are the use cases – how can AI be used across mine operations? This forum will bring together mining industry leaders and the expertise of Montreal’s AI ecosystem to make fast progress on these questions.

Harnessing the power of AI

The AIM program features presentations demonstrating the research and real-life applications of AI outside of mining that can be adapted to our industry, promising rapid value delivery. Case studies of AI applications in mining will also be detailed to showcase opportunities and ROI. Finally, a Use Case Panel will unite the burning requirements from mining company leaders with potential solutions from AI experts drawing on experience in other verticals.

The impact of AI on mining is happening now. Through collaboration we can speed up our adoption and drive real value.
