The field of artificial intelligence (AI) contains exciting possibilities, over-hyped promises, and everything in between. AI applications in the geosciences are no different, however, the nature of uncertainty in the geosciences plays a crucial role in AI tools. The talk will be an overview of AI and knowledge engineering and how it pertains to mineral exploration, resources and mining.


Samuel Cantor is the Section Head of Economic Geology at Minerva and has over ten years of varied experience in mineral exploration, laboratories, and environmental remediation. He now focuses primarily on the use of cognitive AI in mineral deposit research and mineral exploration.

Sam completed his Bachelor’s in Geology at the University of Colorado in Boulder in 2009, after which he worked on mineral exploration projects in Idaho and Nicaragua before moving to Chicago to work in environmental remediation. He moved to Vancouver to pursue his MSc with the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at the University of British Columbia to investigate the exploration potential of stable isotopes and luminescence in carbonate-hosted deposits.


Please join the Calgary Mineral Exploration Group on Monday, June 7th at 12 pm for a virtual talk given by Sam Cantor of Minerva Intelligence. The title of the talk is AI and Knowledge Engineering: Getting the Computer to Reason Like a Geologist.
