The AI Working Group has recently launched its first project. The Foundations for AI in Mining project will provide a unified understanding of the basics of AI in mining that cuts through the hype, clarifies what methods are useful and identifies how they can be applied.
Articulate a clear and unified understanding and framework of what artificial intelligence (AI) is and how it can benefit the mining industry.
The output will be a document to assist mining companies with successfully implementing AI techniques within their business. This includes:
- Discussion of the terminology surrounding AI
- The high-level steps needed to introduce AI into an organization
- A maturity model to enable companies to plan their AI strategy
- Common case studies and use cases that highlight the variety of processes that can be transformed using AI enabled technologies
AI has quickly become recognized as an opportunity to harness new technology for operational efficiency, but there is still general confusion about what it is, and there are many questions about its applications in mining.
Media announcements about new uses of AI often create hype around spectacular features but rarely describe the basics. Resources covering these basics are therefore needed to cut through the hype and clarify what methods are useful, and for what circumstances they can be applied.
