Molycop Innovates at Flotation 2023 Conference in Cape Town

Exciting developments are underway as Molycop takes center stage at the Flotation 2023 conference in Cape Town, South Africa. Our Control and Software Engineer, Brad Williams, is set to deliver a groundbreaking presentation titled "Using Artificial Intelligence to Classify Flotation Froth Conditions" on Tuesday, November 7th, at 2:30 pm. The presentation will be hosted at the Vineyard Conference Centre, located within the prestigious Vineyard Hotel.

Leveraging his expertise in Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence, Brad has played a pivotal role in developing an innovative AI-based approach for detecting anomalies in mineral processing. His work underscores the critical need to address variations in ore composition and process disturbances within the realm of flotation.

At the heart of the presentation is a cutting-edge convolutional neural network (CNN) designed to identify "boiling" conditions in the froth, indicative of excessive disturbances. Impressively, the CNN achieves a 98% accuracy rate on test images. The paper delves into the seamless integration of this system into existing control methods, enhancing stability while recognizing real-time data limitations and proposing robust solutions.

For those attending the Flotation conference, don't miss the opportunity to gain insights at the Vineyard Conference Centre. Discover firsthand how Molycop is spearheading innovation in the mineral processing industry.
