About this event

Control systems are the nerve centre of a minerals processing operation and a key conduit to digital transformation. There have been radical changes in digital technology over the last few years, with the wide deployment of AI and the increasing use of cloud, edge and smart sensing technologies. There has also been a lot of hype, but one thing that has remained constant is that control systems are evolving rapidly to realise the real benefits these new technologies can provide. This on-demand course discusses the rapid developments in control systems along with how they are becoming digital transformation enablers in the minerals processing industry.
