Questions from audience in the chat
Picture: The AI researchers at Örebro University have carried out several research and development projects in collaboration with companies in the mining industry. An example is the AutoBoomer project, financed by Swedish Mining Innovation, where the goal was to use AI to coordinate and optimize the movements on the drilling rig’s arms.
