CSA Global Resource Consultant, Adrian Martinez will present on “Machine Learning for Geologists” at the Toronto Geological Discussion Group; Mini-Symposium – New Technologies in Exploration on April 3, 2018.
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Machine learning techniques are becoming popular in the mining industry but only a selected group of academic researchers and industry technologists are actively working with these revolutionary tools.
This presentation is to promote the use of machine learning techniques by ‘non-experts’ to solve geological problems.
Adrian will share his experiences on how to dive into machine learning, from simple to complex techniques, and will provide comment on what software are commonly used by beginners and experts.
The presentation includes demonstrative examples of geological problems solved with machine learning, with emphasis on the complexity of each problem and the techniques required to solve it.
This talk also includes comments on what kind of techniques may be used for different problems, based on the nature of the informing data.
