AUTOMATION AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Technology and digital transformation are playing an increasingly important role in the mining industry in Europe. Digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, and automation are being used to increase efficiency and reduce costs in mining operations. The use of data-driven decision-making, geospatial technologies, and 3D modelling is also helping to improve mineral exploration and resource management. Additionally, advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain technology, and virtual and augmented reality are helping to improve supply chain traceability, mineral rights management, and mining operations. In order to fully leverage the potential of these technologies, companies are investing in digital infrastructure and training workers in digital skills. The use of these technologies can also help to mitigate the environmental and social impacts of mining operations and promote sustainability and transparency in the mining sector.
