10–13 August 2020
Advances in computing technology and increased availability of data have allowed the oil & gas industry to embrace the potential of machine learning and data analytics for solving some of the most challenging problems. Research and development efforts that utilize machine learning and data analytics approaches for geoscience applications have shown promising results and have cultivated a new wave of innovations.
This workshop is designed to showcase the successes and challenges of practicing machine learning and data analytics in the geoscience domain to improve accuracy and efficiency of algorithms and/or workflows. For example, in addition to existing applications such as seismic geobody identification and well log data analysis, what other challenging geoscience problems can be formulated and solved effectively by machine learning? How can machine learning algorithms and workflows be tailored to meet the specific physical constraints of geoscience data? How can we fully exploit the power of machine learning and physics-based approaches?
