The 2022 Beyond Digital Transformation Conference is about navigating the challenge of designing mine sites with remote-first in mind. If you think about the space industry, we have people on earth who fix things remotely to make those missions possible, while only sending astronauts in the rarest of cases to face the harsh realities of outer space, so why not bring that thinking to mining?
On March 22nd 2022 we will kick off an exploration of Risks, Rewards, Opportunities and Possibilities with forward thinking mining companies who are willing to explore the possibilities of remote-first and designing their mines with the least number of people at site in mind.
To make this possible we will need a completely different way of thinking. The current pandemic has highlighted the need for this. This does not mean a crew-less mine, it means using people for their knowledge and expertise and more importantly keeping them out of harm’s way. There are many questions to be answered such as, is the technology here? Mining vendors partnering with us say yes! The bigger question is, is the mining community ready? I guess we will find out!
For the first time ever Beyond Digital Transformation is looking to hear from not just mining companies but also mining industry suppliers on how their unique solutions could help lay the path forward on any of the following enablers.
