“Minerva is quickly becoming recognized globally for its AI applications using standardized data and ontologies”, said Scott Tillman , Chief Executive Officer at Minerva. “Awards such as these are a unique opportunity to validate the work we have done in both the academic arena and among large industry stakeholders. As we look to move ahead in further commercializing our technology, awards and events such as the INSPIRE Challenge create a valuable opportunity to show that Minerva technology is impactful and can offer companies a competitive edge in analyzing geohazard risks as well as mining prospects.”
