After a final round of presentations to a panel of industry experts and in the face of tough competion, ANDRITZ impressed the judges with the innovative use of its worldwide proven IDEAS Digital Twin technology to train artificial intelligence (AI) for autonomous operation of mineral processing facilities.
ANDRITZ’s winning AI innovation

The basis of this innovation is ANDRITZ’s simulation software IDEAS, which is used to build a virtual “twin” of a processing plant as a fully dynamic model. With the Digital Twin, customers are able not only to optimize plant operations but also to train their operators. Sohail Nazari, ANDRITZ Automation’s business development manager, says: “We thought, if we’re able to build training simulators so accurately that they can train operators, why not use the same environment to train artificial intelligence?”

So ANDRITZ developed a Digital Twin of an entire mineral processing operation and created a safe, virtual environment in which AI can make changes, observe the consequences and update its priorities. Over many iterations, it learns the best operating points, how to start up and shut down, how to process minerals and optimize production, and how to respond to abnormal and emergency situations. Once fully trained, the AI can be integrated into real-time operation.

The result is a piece of software that takes over error-prone or repetitive tasks from human operators so that the plant runs at its best operating point, with more consistent production and fewer safety or environmental risks. AI can quickly process information and recommend data-driven solutions that improve the mineral processing operation and assist with plant-wide optimization.

The AI training concept was developed by a team of ANDRITZ control engineers who had previously entered a company-internal innovation contest. As the winners, they were given funding for a prototype and the opportunity to focus on developing the new technology. The recent win at #DisruptMining will enable them to carry the concept further. “At the moment, our artificial intelligence has only run in a simulated environment,” says Nazari. “With Goldcorp’s support, we will be able to take the important step from the laboratory to the plant.”
