RAPAPORT… Traditional diamond grading can be inconsistent and inefficient, but is automation a viable alternative? Experts shared their views in the latest “Fast-Tracking the Future” webinar installment.
Titled “Automated Grading and the AI Revolution,” the final session of the three-part series featured panelists from four organizations: David Block, CEO of Sarine Technologies, the series’ sponsor; Nitin Kumar Dhadda, chief manufacturing officer at diamond-cutting firm KGK; Pritesh Patel, chief operating officer at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA); and Andrew Rickard, vice president of operations at US wholesaler RDI Diamonds.
The participants discussed whether artificial intelligence gives more accurate results than a human grader, and what can be done to protect systems from fraud. Also: Is the industry ready for such a major step?
