Saskatchewan Polytechnic is blazing a trail in the field of artificial intelligence with one of the biggest projects the school has ever taken on.
Sask Polytech’s digital integration centre of excellence, or DICE, is working with Cameco to help them refine the process used to get uranium out of the ground in northern Saskatchewan.
“Our job was to take all the different types of data that Cameco has,” said DICE research chair Terry Peckham. “Put all of that together and then train our computer system to figure out the best way to create the best shape for that jet-boring machine to cut the ore out.”
“This is a very unique-to-Saskatchewan problem, and a made-in-Saskatchewan solution to go with it.”
