There’s no escaping the fact that the mining and processing industry needs to keep up to date with the latest trends in technology.
The Industrial Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0, big data, virtual reality and the role of technology in achieving the Paris Agreement targets and Net Zero are hot topics at industry conferences, in the media and online – and have been increasingly so since the COVID-19 pandemic.
But there needs to be a reality check.
As McCoy and Auret asked in their 2019 paper ‘Machine Learning Applications in Minerals Processing: A Review’, “should the current hype about machine learning be of interest to the minerals processing industry, or is this just another period of unrealistic optimism?”

Front-line staff are not immune to the concerns relating to digital transformation either.
Workforces are often faced with receiving insufficiently scoped and planned deployments.
Alternatively, they’re being tasked to roll out programs that have been insufficiently aligned to requirements or lack the sponsorship, ownership and change leadership necessary for success.
So what are the secrets to making digital transformation work for your operation? And why are billions of dollars of investment missing the mark?
