The Digital Intelligence Series:

The SEG Digital Intelligence Series will foster your Digital Transformation of geoscience practices to enhance value creation with two strong knowledge-exchange programs at the:

The 2nd Edition Artificially Intelligent Earth Exploration Workshop 
30 November–2 December

The High Performance Computing & Software for Exploration and Reservoir Developement 
6–8 December

Attendees will get the unique experience to take advantage of the two strong programs and multiple speakers from across the globe to enhance their skills with the ongoing digitization.

The objective of Artificial Intelligence workshop is to bring together interested individuals to share their experiences in applying machine learning algorithms in geoscience applications, especially applications related to the oil and gas sector. In addition, we’ll examine the various schools of thought in machine learning applications in the geoscience field to share advances and breakthroughs, highlight advantages and limitations, compare results, and debate emerging approaches in the world of artificial intelligence.

About High Performance Computing Workshop

In the current Information Age, scientific computing constitutes the third pillar of science besides the traditional two; theory and experiment. Our business depends on the non-trivial endeavor of harnessing algorithms on the largest high-performance private computing facilities across all sectors. Nowadays, a mix of traditional algorithms from seismic exploration and reservoir development run at scale on such supercomputers, but nevertheless, new emerging ones from machine learning are making headway into our business.

The main goals of this workshop are to leverage the latest algorithms and to improve the traditional ones on rapidly evolving compute technologies. We invite scientists and engineers from oil and gas companies, service companies, technology vendors, and academia to show their progress and readiness in the face of this post-Moore’s law era where through co-design, adapting to increased parallelism, and computing power directly impacts exploration and reservoir development.

The workshop will enable all participants to get acquainted with the very latest advances in HPC architectures and how these may be applied in geoscience applications used in the oil and gas industry. The workshop proposes a healthy mixture of various contributions from four different groups:

  1. Oil and gas companies exposing their main business needs and how HPC impacts their bottom line
  2. Service providers demonstrating their accomplishments through HPC and upcoming technology
  3. Academia showing their latest research endeavors, results, and initiatives in HPC
  4. HPC vendors presenting current and upcoming hardware as well as software technologies that will ensure effective utilization of HPC

The workshop is open to novel contributions or recent advances seldom presented to this community. Talks discussing current and upcoming challenges are also welcome.

Who should attend?

The goal of the workshop is to promote a dialogue among scientists and engineers who work at the intersection of high-performance and emerging computing, and exploration/ development in the oil and gas industry as well as related fields.  Attendance and contribution is encouraged from all who seek to address the algorithmic, computing, and workflow challenges facing the future of exploration (seismic or otherwise), interpretation, simulation, and development planning.  Attendees and speakers from industry, academia, and government labs are welcome.
