It’s a dirty job, but does it have to be? Shane Summers from FutureMine Solutions is positive the mining and resources industry can do better. On the podcast today we discuss the next industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 and the benefits this will have on the mining and resources industry. With the move towards electric powered mining equipment, Artificial Intelligence and sophisticated software systems, Shane discusses how we can achieve a cleaner, safer and more sustainable mining environment.
His message is clear: If you don’t adapt to the new technology there’s the potential to be left behind. Shane also emphasises the importance of recognising the limit to your knowledge and understanding when it’s necessary to ask others for advice.
