Brief Musings on Subsurface Data Analytics and Machine Learning

Coding, Data Science, Engineering, Geoscience, Machine Learning, Petroleum Engineering, Statistics , , , , ,
Michael Pyrcz, PhD, P.Eng (daytum Founding Advisor) Subsurface is Unique Due to (1) sparse data, (2) heterogeneous spatial system, (3) high degree of uncertainty, (4) thick layer of unavoidable interpretation, and (5) extremely high value development decisions We must go beyond the data! Data analytics is the application of data cleaning and statistical analysis to…
