SensOre has commenced a joint project with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) looking at automation and efficiency in big data cleaning and processing solutions for the mineral resource sector.
Access to high-quality datasets has, in the past, been an obstacle to applying cutting-edge predictive analytics to solve geoscience and mineral exploration problems, according to SensOre.
The joint project, which will confront this problem, will see several CSIRO data science experts embedded within SensOre over the next six months.
SensOre says it aims to become the top performing minerals targeting company in the world through the deployment of artificial intelligence and machine-learning technologies, specifically its Discriminant Predictive Targeting® workflow.
“SensOre is committed to world-leading mineral exploration research and development,” Richard Taylor, CEO and Director of SensOre, said. “This is the second time SensOre has worked with CSIRO and the engagement has led to order of magnitude improvements in our approach. Australian government support, such as the Kick Start initiative, is important for Australian technology companies looking to grow globally.”
The joint project benefits from CSIRO’s Kick Start initiative for innovative Australian start-ups, providing funding support and access to CSIRO’s research expertise. The program offers eligible businesses matched funding of up to A$50,000 ($34,681) to undertake research activities.
