A driver of the fourth industrial revolution, artificial intelligence (AI) promises unparalleled opportunities to create value for industrial and manufacturing businesses. To solidify these advantages, Canadian businesses must position themselves now. They must determine where the best opportunities lie and then equip their companies with a vision and a plan for their first steps into the field. Do not miss this short course if you want to know more about current AI opportunities in the mining sector.

Artificial intelligence is one of the strongest links in the Industry 4.0 chain.

Do you have the right tools?
