Innovation in Data Acquisition, Analytics and Automation for Contaminated Sites and Mining Environmental Applications
Data science is a rapidly evolving field that is changing our environmental and mining practices. New technologies in data acquisition and internet of things (IoT), data analytics including approaches for big data, automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and virtual reality are being rapidly developed. Innovations in these areas offers the potential for more efficient and sustainable practices. This workshop will explore the latest advances in these areas by bringing together leading researchers and practitioners involved in data science. There will be both leading edge talks on emerging trends and practical tools and approaches currently in use and available to practitioners.
As well, please find attached a Sponsorship invitation. Support from your firm at all levels is much appreciated.
