Creating accurate, precise, and meaningful 3D graphics that help you analyze and make decisions is vital in drone-based mapping, whether it be digital outcrops, surface structures, construction, or methane seep detection. Welcome to an interview with Tim Kustka at Datumate, who discusses how they have developed software to be used with drones and other airborne cameras for 3D images with accuracy appropriate for precision engineering.

Drones are currently being used in many applications, including pipeline and tank inspections, as well as methane leaks and seeps. Money is being saved. Resources are being discovered. But, behind the use of most drones and UAVs is the issue of safely and legally operating beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). Welcome to an interview with Jim Cieplak, who talks to us today about his work with Harris Corporation and BVLOS solutions.

While we often talk about what drones can do, we often do not think about what the drone pilot experiences, particularly in a time of rapid step changes in technology. Welcome to an interview with Charles Winfree, Aviation Unmanned (http://www.aviationunmanned.com/) who discusses the challenges and opportunities of using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

This presentation and demonstration will focus on a machine learning workflow in the upstream Oil and Gas domain to predict formation tops by applying artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to learn the well logs signatures. This deep learning model provides high quality predictions to aid the geologists in picking lithology markers consistently and in an accelerated fashion thus boosting their operational efficiency. The self-learning model, which is a unique differentiator of dataVediK and encompasses the detection of outliers and data quality issues and their subsequent validation and suggested corrections to improve the quality of data in an automated fashion during the model training process. The demo will then showcase a real-time drilling solution built using this ML model, whereby the formation tops are predicted, and the structural model is updated automatically as the GR log is acquired.

There are many studies that talk about the economies of scale associated to cloud storage that make it so cheap. Yet oil and gas companies managing petabytes of seismic data are not jumping on the cloud storage bandwagon. In this talk, Suri Bhat, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Bluware, will explore why moving petabytes of seismic data to the cloud is difficult. He will share some of the true costs of managing large data sets in the cloud and why it doesn’t add significant business value. In the same way that lifting and shifting legacy tools and services to the cloud yields little value, moving seismic data to the cloud also yields little value. It isn’t until applications, workflows and even the data storage formats are re-engineered that real business value and even cost saving can be found. He will explore how this is possible today with open file formats. Webinar presented via Zoom on 28 October 2020 at 12:00 London time (UTC-0)
