Introduction to Machine Learning with Python for Mineral Exploration

9 May 2022 | 9am - 12pm | Register here

Using open-source Python libraries (scikit-learn, pandas, seaborn, matplotlib) to perform exploratory data analysis on different geophysical data types.

We will then use predictive machine learning approaches for finding mineral deposits based on the different geophysical layers. The framework we will build can be expanded to high performance computing or cloud environments, and is versatile enough to be applied to many datasets from different domains with predictive applications.

The Power of Visualisation @ Pawsey

POSTPONED TO 26 May | 11am - 12.30pm | Register here

Join this event to meet Pawsey’s visualisation team, understand the FREE services on offer to ALL Australian researchers, and meet the researchers who are already using Nebula and Topaz to visualise their scientific research and the impact it has had on their data and science.

With the increasing amount of simulation data generated by current large-scale supercomputers, visualisation plays an important role in the analysis of massive data sets.

Users who have large data sets may find it impossible to visualise their data using their laptop or other available computers they have locally, due to large RAM requirements or lack of a powerful dedicated GPU.

Using Data Science to Run and Manage Supply Chains

11 May 2022 | 12pm - 1pm | Register here

Supply Chains are complex, constantly changing, and essential to many industries. They also produce lots of data which is often collected and stored. But how can you use this data to run supply chains, and how will it work with current processes and procedures?

Using Data Science to Optimise Ore Delivery and Crusher Performance

12 May 2022 | 12pm - 1pm | Register here

Crushers perform best when they have constant feed of ore flowing into them. But different types of ore take longer to crush than others, and waiting on trucks has consequences.

The same is true for the trucks delivering the ore to the crusher.

So how can you predict when the crusher is going to be ready and make sure that there is a truck waiting to deliver without the queues?
