Webinar Recording: The Innovation Skills Gap

Webinar Recording: The Innovation Skills Gap

Disruptive innovations have changed the traditional operations in each stage of the mining value chain and have required individuals from all disciplines to develop skills and capabilities that were previously irrelevant in mining. It is undisputed that the future of mining will be high-tech and digitised, and indeed, this is already upon us with the increased use of automation, data management, integrated operations, faster mine planning and simulation software and drones.

However, the game-changing innovations and revolutionary artificial intelligence systems give rise to an emerging issue previously not encountered in the mining sector: a technological skills gap. Rather than performing their traditional functions, miners, engineers, geologists, metallurgists, managers and other stakeholders will be tasked with understanding and disseminating the vast amount of information generated by new technologies.
