Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Mining - Thematic Research

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Mining - Thematic Research

Summary

The mining industry is under more pressure than ever to increase efficiencies. This comes as declining ore grades and more disparate and remote deposits create greater challenges in securing new resources, and rising mining costs drive the need for greater productivity at the mine site. At the same time, there is a strong focus on ensuring safety and sustainability within mines. Artificial intelligence (AI) can address many of these challenges and inefficiencies through several key technologies in the value chain, including computer vision, smart robots, data science, and machine learning.

As the value chain is fragmented, effective collaboration and communication between multiple stakeholders is key. AI-powered tools can reduce exploration costs through the use of drones and computer vision to identify the most likely locations of mineral deposits. Predictive maintenance can ensure that equipment defects are solved before they become extremely costly and ensure that equipment downtime is kept to a minimum, increasing productivity. Smart sensors and cameras aid automated equipment while also monitoring the safety of workers in mines. Productivity in mining has stagnated, and no company can afford to miss the benefits that AI can offer. Using the information in this report, you can formulate an AI strategy for your business.
