2018 Oil & Gas

Machine Learning

Symposium   |   27 September 2018

Houston, Texas


The impact of machine learning in upstream

The oil and gas industry has always been a ‘Big Data’ business.  Now, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Cloud Computing, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are rapidly changing the ways that hydrocarbons are discovered and developed. New technology is enabling innovators to create and discover more value through entirely new workflows that were not available even a few years ago.  And, the big technology companies are now teaming with leaders in the oil and gas industry, which promises to accelerate changes. The 2018 Oil & Gas Machine Learning Symposium presents speakers from the major tech companies along with thought leaders in the energy industry for an insightful and engaging blend of innovation, geoscience, and engineering. Check out the lineup of leaders from across the oil and gas industry:

Featured Talks & Speakers

Join us to hear speakers from companies across both the upstream oil and gas industry and the broader tech section with hands-on knowledge and application of Machine Learning and AI as they share their insights at the 2018 Oil & Gas Machine Learning Symposium.

  • Hear the industry’s leading thought leaders from companies that are developing and applying machine learning in upstream. Representatives from Amazon, Anadarko, IBM, Microsoft, Repsol, Shell, TGS, and others will describe their visions of technology strategies that will shape the future of energy.
  • Engage with thought leaders from the super-majors to independent producers who have launched data analytics and machine learning initiatives.
  • Learn how service and software companies like TGS and Geophysical Insights are developing solutions that offer their customers new solutions for both data and applications.

Data Science, Machine Learning

Learn about the applications of Data Analytics and Machine Learning to all aspects of exploration and production from seismic interpretation through reservoir engineering.  Find out why these technologies will change workflows, and how geoscientists and engineers can leverage these new technologies to find and develop hydrocarbons.

Breakout Sessions

Start the day with a networking breakfast at 7:45, followed by a series of talks by industry thought-leaders in the morning plenary session that extends through lunch. Then, engage with other innovators from Microsoft, Nvidia, the University of Oklahoma AASPI Consortium, and Geophysical Insights in afternoon breakout sessions on… ML/Cloud Technologies Machine Learning Applications The Future of Geoscience Reservoir Engineering


Engage with other innovators and thought-leaders to exchange ideas and capture new ways to apply Data Analytics and Machine Learning to your business area.  Meet leaders in the tech sector and across the energy industry who are pioneering the application of these new tools.
