Clinton Smyth P.Geo

President and Director

Clinton is a geologist and software developer with 40 years of experience in minerals exploration, resource evaluation and mining, 25 of those with one of the largest mining companies in the world. He began his career as a De Beers Consolidated Mines student at the University of Cape Town in 1974, moving to the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa with a BSc (Hons) in geochemistry in 1978. He served Anglo American in diverse roles throughout Africa and Australasia. In 1985 he was sent by Anglo American to Imperial College, London, to study artificial intelligence applications in geology, and in 1996 he moved to Singapore to establish Anglo American's exploration presence in that region. During his career with Anglo, he held various responsibilities in exploration geochemistry, resource evaluation, software development and corporate management. In 2000, as Vice President (Exploration) in Johannesburg, he resigned from Anglo American to establish Georeference Online Ltd in Vancouver. <resume> In 2017, Georeference Online Ltd. sold its artificial intelligence software and intellectual property to Minerva Intelligence Inc., where Clinton assumed the position of CEO. In May, 2019, Minerva was listed on the Toronto Venture Exchange under the symbol MVAI. In October, 2019, Clinton moved to the position of CTO of Minerva. In November, 2019, Minerva won the INSPIRE Challenge in Helsink, Finland, for its AI-based lanslide hazard map of the Veneto region in Italy. In 2020 Clinton hosted and presented in a 90 minute workshop on artificial intelligence at the INSPIRE 2020 Conference in Dubrovnik (reference below).

Chris Ahern

Software Systems Manager

Chris is a software engineer with 25 years experience, ranging from the administration of back-end Unix and Windows servers and databases, to front-end web development. After graduating from the University of Natal, South Africa, he started his career in the telecommunications industry, first with Telkom South Africa and later at MTN, a large mobile carrier in South Africa. After moving to Vancouver, he worked in a small consulting firm installing and configuring wholesale billing solutions for various telecom companies around the world. His broad range of experience is well suited to our work at Georeference Online, where, since 2008, he has developed and supported our CampControl system, together with our artificial intelligence applications in minerals exploration and GIS.
