Data Analytics and Machine Learning for Energy Geoscience and Engineering - Michael J. Pyrcz, The University of Texas at Austin

Energy professionals have a long history of working with large, complicated geoscience and engineering datasets. There is a growing toolbox of old and new emerging data-driven methods available that may offer improved efficiencies and potentially new insights. This talk is an opportunity to link subsurface data analytics and machine learning to fundamental concepts from probability, statistics, geoscience, and engineering and to provide an enthusiastic, critical perspective on what we may expect in the data-driven science revolution.
