  • Apply the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence and primary Artificial Intelligence algorithms, particularly in the areas of Machine Learning and Deep Learning applied to geoscientific data (electrical well logs, seismic, well production data, and geochemical data of minerals).
  • Apply geoscientific data analysis and visualization techniques using Python libraries
  • Interpret output obtained by the prediction models
  • Use libraries for Machine Learning (Scikit-Learn) and Deep Learning (Keras and TensorFlow)

An identical course will be offered in English at the beginning of 2021. Stay tuned to our website for more information.

Course Content

Artificial Intelligence for Geoscience equips participants with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to apply Machine Learning and Deep Learning concepts to the field of geosciences.

Machine Learning is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence, which is based on trying to imitate the actions of human beings through the training of algorithms. This branch of Data Science is booming in various areas of geosciences, including electrical well log interpretation, reservoir characterization, seismic interpretation, identification of areas with high mining potential, among others.

Deep Learning focuses on the use of neural networks and applying the "back-propagation" method to adjust errors resulting from different iterations, and, when enough data is available, to obtain results far superior to those obtained by "classical" learning algorithms in Machine Learning.

This course will allow participants to apply the knowledge and algorithms learned immediately, both in their research, as well as in their professional career.
