HyperCube: Outsmart your data

By IOS team and BearingPoint, April 13, 2016

Why do geologists analyze 50 elements by ICP if they use only copper and iron? What is the relationship between acidity and chargeability? How can we unearth counter-intuitive links in heterogeneous data without testing each data associations manually? How do we think outside the box without using a black-box?

Welcome in “Big Data Mining”!

IOS, in partnership with BearingPoint, a global business solution consulting group, works to apply HyperCube rare event prediction software to mineral exploration. Although the task is broad in scope, the method has been successfully applied to regional mineral assessment, exploration geochemistry, property scale targeting, both in plane map or drilling, etc.

A marked interest, with a tint of curiosity, from the industry encouraged IOS and BearingPoint to offer two training programs on HyperCube:

Introduction to Hypercube: To be held in French on May 25, 2016, at the Forestel Hotel, Val d'Or, aside Explo-Abitibi commercial exposition. This 6-hour session, to be held in French, aims to provide attendees with an introduction to artificial intelligence in mineral exploration using HyperCube “brute force” algorithm. Registration is free, but the number of places is limited. Please register to Mr. Clément Dombrowski ([email protected] or 1-800-307-4498).

HyperCube Training for mineral industry: To be held in English on May 10 and 11, 2016 in Montreal, by BearingPoint and IOS representatives. This session will offer trainees with a complete coverage of HyperCube platforms, including a review of “white-box” artificial intelligence procedures and grips on non-Euclidian non-stochastic binary classifiers. This session will be explicitly dedicated to the mineral industry, including a review of the various applications. Trainees will be invited to bring and test their own database, and to develop a predictive model upon these (bring your computer!). Registration is free, but places are limited. Please register to Mr. Paulo Ferreira ([email protected] or 1-514-571-4097) or Clément Dombrowski ([email protected] or 1-800-307-4498).
