Mining Services
Requires different levels of automation:
- Prevent machine self-harm
- Improve/recover performance
- Reduce levels of operator input
Safety
Social Factors
Innovation
Require a framework of open standards to increase the speed and coverage of innovation
Productivity
If I'm going to talk about mining in the cloud then I should at least give this presentation in the cloud!
Requires study of human factors (user interface):
(cognitive load - concentration, overload)
Requires communication standards and heightened situational awareness
Requires common mine model

Ubiquitous Computing:
Always Connected,
Always Aware
Dependability Attributes:
Availability - readiness for correct service
Reliability - continuity of correct service
Safety - absence of catastrophic consequences on the user(s) and the environment
Integrity - absence of improper system alteration
Maintainability - ability for a process to undergo modifications and repairs
How do you guarantee the performance of the mining process when there are NO people on site?
If nature can do it, so can a machine
