Get answers to this question and more at OptiSaw – the one-day education forum for those driving the future of sawmilling – taking place in Richmond, B.C., on June 5.

Featured presentation: iSawmill: Control your product output with artificial intelligence

Lucidyne’s Patrick Freeman will discuss how they are using the newest form of artificial intelligence technology to train the GradeScan automated scanner/optimizer. The system learns to grade lumber like a human grader learns: by example. Freeman will lead a discussion on how this technology can maximize your fibre and value recovery.

Don’t wait to sign up. The forum is limited to an exclusive audience of sawmill management and owners, process engineers, continual improvement managers, optimization staff, researchers and design consultants. Register now to secure your seat at the table.
