Webinar: AI – a necessary enabler for sustainable mining production!?

17 February 2021

Time: 17 February, 13.00-16.00
Place: Digital event
The event will be held in English.


What exactly is AI? And how can AI create value ??and increase the competitiveness of the Swedish mining industry?

We will dive into these and other relevant issues in an afternoon. We will listen to talks from prominent people in the field and also have representatives from academia and the mining companies give their views on how to work with AI as an enabler for a sustainable industry. And what challenges do they see?

The digital event is a follow-up to the previously appreciated workshop “AI in Mining – Hype and Hope” which was held just over a year ago.

Welcome!
