  • Automate model building to identify patterns in geological data
  • Utilise machine learning to reduce downtime and costs through predictive maintenance
  • Understand how to use deep neural networks for image recognition, NLP, and text-based sentiment analysis
  • Take predictive analysis to the next level
  • Learn from 30+ industry experts

Data Science Challenge

Have you been working on an interesting data science project that the industry should hear about?

Often the people doing the work don't get to speak at conferences, and we want to change that!  We’re offering three people the opportunity to attend and speak at the conference on their data science project. Unearthed will support each speaker with free training and mentoring for their talk.  

What do you need to know?

  • Submit to talk about any data science related topic in the mining industry
  • We encourage anyone involved in a data science project to apply, whatever your role
  • Complete our online form letting us know what you’d like to speak about - https://unearthed.solutions/u/competitions/ml-mining-conference
  • This opportunity is only open to those in, or able to travel to Perth, as part of the opportunity is meeting your fellow data science community members in person!
  • It doesn’t matter how senior or junior you are, students are also encouraged to apply.
  • Each speaker will have a 20 minute slot for their talk, followed by 10 mins of Q&A, facilitated by the Unearthed team.
  • Applications close on 30th September - we’ll let you know if you’re successful by 7th October
  • If you’re not sure if you need approval to share your project, please apply anyway and we’ll help you navigate through approvals!
