Description

 Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and increases in high throughput computational architectures, cloud-based solutions have driven present-day decision making through the analysis of petabytes of rich data coming from the oil fields. Not only that, in the recent trend of global oil price decline, these advancements can save time, reduce operational expenses, enhance efficiencies, mitigate risk and manage health and safety. AI technologies have now become an integral part of the operations of most oil and gas companies, allowing them to gather large volumes of information in real-time and translate data sets into actionable insights. In this talk, I shall go over a few prominent use cases where AI technologies have made the most impact to our businesses while also pushing the state of the art of geophysical acquisition methods.
