Federico Arboleda, acQuire’s Commercial Strategist, joins the GIM Channel to discuss how the mining industry is ready to adapt and adopt new innovations and technologies to drive greater productivity.
So how do you jump on the productivity bandwagon? Federico discusses why you need your fundamental data before you do anything else. Without your original observations and measurements being managed effectively, you can’t enable big data analysis, machine learning or other efficiencies the industry is trying to drive.
Here are some key take-outs:
“The trends of the digital data capture or digital sensors, and other trends related to automation of knowledge, machine learning, are really beginning to change our marketplace and the minerals industry” – Federico
“Without the fundamental data, then you can’t do anything else. It’s the fundamental building block that is going to enable big data analysis, machine learning, all these efficiencies that we’re actually trying to drive.” – Federico
“I think that the ecosystem will change, where instead of one single player owning the entire value chain, where you have the material movement system and the GIM, and the mine planning system and the environmental system all owned by a single entity, it’s actually going to unbundle.” – Federico
