Apr 20, 2023MS TeamsTACym Tunnelling 101 Webinar: Machine Learning in Tunnelling – Not If, but When!

Machine Learning (ML) is playing an increasingly role in our personal and professional lives. But what does it mean, exactly? Is it the same as or different from Artificial Intelligence? Can I use it in tunnelling? Will it take my job?!

This presentation will introduce how various ML algorithms work, discuss how you could use it in your tunnelling projects, and present some cutting-edge examples of ML in tunnelling projects around the world.
