The software that Malmö-based SentianAI develops uses advanced AI algorithms that continuously learn and adapt to the processes within a mine, providing continuous improvement and optimisation over time.

“Digital technology has an important role in helping address the challenges of declining ore grades, production efficiency, and CO2 emissions for our customers,” said Jon Stanton, CEO of The Weir Group. “SentianAI’s advanced software solutions complement and will bridge our Synertrex and Motion Metrics technologies well. Together, these will enable us to provide holistic performance monitoring and optimisation for smart, efficient and sustainable mining.”
