The mining industry stands poised to benefit from an era of digital change and disruption.

Automated sensors monitor the mining environment in real time and deliver insights invisible to the human eye. Machinery can be made aware of its surroundings – and those who operate in them. Artificial intelligence can monitor multiple streams of complex and changing data and support decision making.

These advances offer to transform business and operational models that have driven the mining sector for decades.

MRIWA will host a panel of leading figures in mining technology, process optimisation and automation as they explore these powerful industry trends:

  • Andrew Job (CEO, Plotlogic)
  • Stuart Midgley (Chief Information Officer, DUG)
  • Nadia Rom (Manager Data and Advanced Analytics, FMG)
  • Mark O’Brien (General Manager – Digital Technology and Innovation, CITC Pacific)

In dynamic conversation with the audience, the panelists will discuss the benefits real-time digital processing can bring to the mining sector, and the changes that may be required to unlock this potential.
