GMG held a two-day workshops in Tucson (May 21-22), hosted by Freeport McMoRan, and Denver (June 20-21) was hosted by Newmont. Day One focuses on the Interoperability Definitions and Roadmap Project, and Day Two on the Implementation of Autonomous Systems Project.

Interoperability Definitions and Roadmap Project

The project, to be completed by Q3 2018, will enable industry-wide alignment and identify a collaborative path forward to address mining interoperability including the identification of initiatives and projects and fostering increased collaboration across the sector. As part of this project, volunteers will join a multi-stakeholder innovation ecosystem, sharing expertise and building meaningful relationships with potential collaborators.

During the workshop, participants will work together to:

  • Determine common industry interoperability definitions, scope, principles and references
  • Develop a consensus on what the desired end state looks like
  • Identify existing projects and organizations that have developed/are developing interoperability-related solutions
