Event description

Description

Can machine intelligence reduce the impact of our growing human footprint?

Join us on March 8 as we explore how artificial intelligence is breathing life into the way we manage our natural resources — from feeding the world more sustainably to reducing the environmental impacts of mining, energy production and power generation.

This is an opportunity to learn about new research areas and job opportunities with technology startups and industry incumbents that have embraced the transformational potential of big data and AI. For these companies, it’s also an opportunity to convey how AI fits into their future, the challenges they face, and the difficulties of finding the talent they need to succeed.


Come for a mix of keynotes and sector-specific panels that flesh out:

  • The needs of each sector and its key players

  • Specific problems that need solving

  • How artificial intelligence and machine learning will be (and already are) part of the solution


After each panel, attendees will be invited to participate in interactive breakout sessions hosted by panelists and other sector experts. The day will begin with a morning keynote from Jodie Wallis, Managing Director for Accenture’s AI practice in Canada, and includes opening comments from Darin Graham, Industry Innovation Director at the Vector Institute.

Participating organizations include Barrick Gold, Farmers Edge, MineSense, Canvass Analytics, Element AI, Jolimont Global Mining Systems and Natural Resources Canada. The day includes a complimentary lunch and will conclude with a networking reception where audience members and participants can continue the conversation.


Who should attend?

Young professionals, students researching machine learning and artificial intelligence, cleantech startups with AI solutions, and innovators from large resource-focused companies that see AI applications as a way to make their operations more efficient, sustainable and profitable.
