Learning is important—now more than ever. How do you equip yourself for changing times? How do you deepen and broaden your knowledge? Here is an informal place to find out what we’re doing, what we’re planning, and how we’re listening to you. Dr. Susan Nash, AAPG’s Director of Education and Professional Development, shares the new territory she’s introducing to AAPG with courses and dynamic new workshops. She is also planning more interactive, Web 2.0 offerings. So, give her your input about the best and worst of the wild and woolly world of webinars, Web-based training, and open courseware.

Deep learning for predicting behaviors is becoming indispensable in the oil industry. Understanding the fundamentals and having a hands-on experience with hacking Python code in order to predict reservoir flow was the experience provided by the first AAPG-Halliburton Hackathon, which took place July 19 in Houston. Led by the AAPG’s Deep Learning Technical Interest Group (TIG) and Halliburton, the event attracted more than 120 registrants who were primarily geoscientists, engineers, and data scientists who worked together in teams that competed against each other and were judged by a panel of experts. The hackathon was powered by the OpenEarth® Community and supported by a team of Halliburton experts in Python software, code, ideation, and strategy – as well as by domain experts and judges from the Deep Learning TIG.

Iceland is more important than ever for geoscientists as we transition to new and hybrid sources of energy. The geothermal resources of Iceland have long been a model for the world, and the technologies are very applicable to the U.S. wherever the geothermal gradient is high and/or there is magma near the surface (California, Yellowstone Caldera, Hawaii, and more).

Many AAPG members have benefited from supplementing their geoscience degrees and experience with education and training in business through AAPG's partnership with colleges and universities around the world. One such college, Texas A&M Texarkana, offers unique benefits to members because it is online, and residents of Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana can receive in-state or 'border state' tuition, which is significantly more economical than other options. Texas A&M Texarkana offers an MBA with an emphasis in Energy Leadership in collaboration with AAPG.
