Geolearn has been selected as a Semi Finalist and we had the opportunity to present our Augmented Intelligent Mining (AIM) platform during this event.
"Selecting the five finalists and 11 semi-finalists was a difficult task for the selection committee, a testament to the number of revolutionary ideas and technologies put forth in the 153 submissions received."

During the show we had a lot of positive feedback about AIM, from geologists, engineering as well as people working for big actors in artificial intelligence and augmented reality like IBM and Microsoft.
It was a positive experience for us, and we are pleased to see that our product has a great disruptive potential for the mining industry.
