IntelliSense Lab for Mining and Metallurgy Digitalisation in Kazakhstan launched in partnership with innovation leader Tech Garden
IntelliSense Lab was officially launched at the “annual Kazakhstan Industrialization Day address”, by President Nursultan Nazarbayev. IntelliSense.io, the innovation partner of choice for the global mining and natural resources industry, and Tech Garden, the leading Central Asian innovation cluster, have partnered to create IntelliSense Lab, a joint venture to deploy Industry 4.0 technologies to aid Digital Transformation in the Kazakh mining industry.
The partnership provides Kazakhstan with a significant competitive edge and is one of 18 projects in the region announced by the Kazakhstan Ministry of Investment and Development. Based in Almaty, IntelliSense Lab’s first major initiative is the launch of the SMOC (Smart Monitoring & Optimisation Center) for the mining industry. By utilising Brains.app, the IntelliSense.io Real-Time Decision Making Platform, IntelliSense Lab will work proactively with Kazakh mining companies to ensure their mine to market processes run efficiently against mining variability and will introduce new approaches to optimise operations. The Lab will leverage IntelliSense.io’s success in the Chilean mining industry to deliver cross-industry process and equipment performance benchmarks.
The IntelliSense Lab also offers end to end solutions involving devices, networking and software application capabilities from a single platform. The Lab will strategically support the technology ecosystem development in Kazakhstan, by building new sensors using the ARM Mbed platform combined with IntelliSense.io’s applications platform targeting Mining, Oil & Gas and other industry 4.0 sectors.
Sam Bose, CEO of IntelliSense.io, commented “The IntelliSense Lab is an exciting development. It’s the first of its kind in Kazakhstan and Central Asia and I believe it will play a critical role in the digitisation efforts of the mining industry in the country and across the region. IntelliSense.io’s portfolio of Optimisation as a Service (OaaS) applications that are delivered through our Brains.app real-time decision-making platform have been successfully deployed across mining operations in South America and we are excited to partner with Tech Garden and share our best practices and experience in the sector.”
