MONTREAL, CANADA | August 9, 2023
Mila – Quebec AI Institute, the world’s largest academic Deep Learning (DL) research center announces its partnership with KPI Mining Solutions whose mission is to provide significant value to the mining industry through cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based software and services.
KPI Mining Solutions is developing and globally commercializing, innovative, AI-based, stochastic optimization solutions for the mining industry, providing significant increase in profitability and certainty of meeting production and revenue targets. These solutions represent a paradigm shift in mining production planning optimization.
“We are very excited to partner with Mila, a world-leading institution in AI/DL research,” said Benny Cohen, President of KPI Mining Solutions. “Our underlying technologies are focused on stochastic orebody modeling and stochastic optimization. We deliver integrated simultaneous (mines to products to markets) AI + Operations Research (OR) optimization models, dealing with multiple uncertainties. Our collaboration with Mila enables us to leverage and enhance the power of AI in our software.”
The strategic collaboration between Mila and KPI Mining Solutions will aim to enable the development of even more advanced DL models in combination with OR models to continuously enhance our existing and future software solutions, which are focused on the simultaneous stochastic optimization of mining complexes.
“Critical minerals play a crucial role in driving the electric vehicle transition and supporting the climate agenda and AI has proven to be an important technology in the support of Canada’s Critical Mineral Strategy. With this partnership, we aim to further develop AI and ML modeling that will generate advances in mining efficiency, both reducing the environmental impact of mining and supporting Canada’s strategy in this sector. We are proud to welcome KPI Mining Solutions to the Mila community,” said Stéphane Létourneau, Executive Vice-President of Mila.
