Relevant skills required to survive and thrive in the fourth industrial revolution

The fourth industrial revolution is characterised by technologies which are blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres, commonly referred to as cyber-physical systems. The rapid technological innovations associated with the fourth industrial revolution will change the way we interact with the world and revolutionise the very nature of the work we currently […]

A framework for AI in mining

GMG has published Foundations of AI: A Framework for AI in Mining – a white paper that offers an overview of the process of planning for and implementing artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for mining companies. AI-based innovation is being used increasingly in the mining industry as a means to improve processes and decision-making, derive value […]

Machine learning algorithms in boiler plant root cause analysis 

It is often difficult to determine detrimental boiler conditions because the large number of boiler input and output parameters create a complex problem. Such was the case in this study, where a radiant superheater and internal desuperheater were retrofitted in an existing industrial water-tube boiler at a South African sugar mill. After installation, the steam […]

Earth observation satellite with AI ready for launch

A few months from now will see the launch of the first European satellite to demonstrate how onboard artificial intelligence can improve the efficiency of sending earth observation data back to earth. Dubbed ɸ-Sat, or PhiSat, this artificial intelligence technology will fly on one of the two cubesats that make up the FSSCat mission – […]

Acquisition drives AI-based customer relationship management

Salesforce, a CRM software provider, has completed its acquisition of Tableau Software, bringing together its CRM with the analytics platform. The acquisition will enable its clients to understand not only their customers, but delivering powerful AI-driven insights across all types of data and use cases for people of every skill level. Tableau will make Salesforce […]

Construction AI company readies for global expansion

HoloBuilder, an artificial intelligence solution provider for 360° reality capture of construction projects, has partnered with E.ON, Foundamental as well as NRW.BANK. The new investments are part of the company’s global expansion round. With HoloBuilder’s mobile JobWalk App workflow, construction teams can create a digital replica of their project, covering all phases of the building […]

Machine learning for road width capture from aerial photography

In this proof of concept, the use of feature extraction through machine learning using convolutional neural networks to classify aerial photography pixels as either road or non-road, and produce a basis for a polygon feature representing the road surface (and therefore road width) is demonstrated. Aurecon received a brief from a client to build a […]
