Michel Fontaine

President, Albert Mining

In 2005, when I started working for Diagnos Mining division to offer tools using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data mining services in the mining sector, I can tell you that the response of specialists in the Sector has been very mixed. 12 years later, with the arrival of Watson with IBM, Microsoft and others, our team’s experience in more than 80 projects in different parts of the world means that Albert Mining has an undeniably advantageous CARDS system.

What we offer at ALBERT Mining is unique. The experience of 12 years of sustained effort and close to 3 million spent in software development to refine CARDS in the mining sector makes us leader in our field.

It is time to change things and make Artificial Intelligence part of the mining industry.
