The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS: TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION -

A NEW gov­ern­ment-funded Aus­tralian Re­search Council (ARC) In­dus­trial Trans­for­ma­tional Train­ing Cen­tre will be built at Curtin Univer­sity, WA that will use data sci­ence to trans­form as­set main­te­nance for the Aus­tralian re­sources sec­tor.

The cen­tre, led by Curtin, will be run in part­ner­ship with the Univer­sity of Western Aus­tralia, CSIRO, the Univer­sity of Ade­laide, and in­dus­try part­ners Al­coa, BHP, Roy Hill, CORE In­no­va­tion Hub and the Min­er­als Re­search In­sti­tute of WA.

ARC Train­ing Cen­tre for Trans­form­ing Main­te­nance through Data Sci­ence di­rec­tor Pro­fes­sor An­drew Rohl said main­te­nance prac­tices had changed lit­tle in the last 20 years, and were due for a dig­i­tal over­haul which will see new devel­op­ments in com­pu­ta­tional meth­ods, sta­tis­tics, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence and more.
