How Intelligent Information and Communications Technologies Are Transforming Modern Mining

CIM Edmonton 2008
Abstract In order to spur innovation, sometimes a grand vision is required to motivate and align the forces and resources. "Mining on the Moon" presents mind boggling opportunities for technological innovation - from autonomous vehicles to intelligent control systems to advanced communications - and the promise to apply those innovations to create real value for Canadian mining companies. But does Canada have the courage to lead the challenge? The potential of intelligent systems will be used to as a case for delivering innovations within the mining sector, to provoke some consideration of the barriers to innovation and technological risk-taking in Canada and ways to overcome them.
