Southwest New Mexico SME section is working with Cory Stevens and Lia Walker form Freeport-McMoRan to give us an introduction to new technologies the mining industries are incorporating into their operations. Artificial intelligence is one of these technologies that has a vast application in a mine day to day production. AI has been a big contributor in achieving safe and increased production rates. For a start, Lia and Cory will give us an introductory session about AI and its application in Mining on October 15th, 2020 at 3:30pm and follow-up sessions will be held for detailed discussions depending on the audience interests and involvement. This introductory session is a great opportunity for all the current miners and young students who may want to consider mining and computer science as their career path.
