Join the AusIMM Perth Branch on the 4th September for a Masterclass hosted by Adrian Troy and Stan Banks: Hydrogeotech and the Three Little Bears of Digital Disruption (too little; too much; just ‘right’)
With technology at our fingertips more acutely powerful than the systems used to send and monitor man on the moon, how is it possible that 50 years on, we continue to overlook evident earth ‘clues’ preceding the most destructive man-made ground instability of our recent history?
Does this represent prolonged deficiency in cultural mining practice or simply a ‘dulling’ of the senses due to oversaturation with digital data?
Mining of big data often presents big opportunities and with those opportunities comes sincere responsibility to ensure downstream end-users of the shared natural landform are protected from harm. This masterclass seeks to explore the ever-advancing tool chest available to earth scientists and particularly focuses on the past two decades of mining and technological growth as navigated by our presenters.
