A Week in Tech Heaven – Googling in San Francisco [1/3]

So am I understanding this correct: You are here for a $1600 conference. And it’s not for work. This is your free time? Yes. I recently travelled to San Francisco to attend the Google Next conference. Clearly neither a scientific conference nor related to geophysics. And also clearly, the immigration officer was not particularly on […]

Research Talk — Deep Learning for 4D Pressure Saturation Inversion [Youtube]

I presented in Amsterdam during the Practical Reservoir Monitoring Workshop in Amsterdam. This is the accompanying video. Abstract In this work, we present a deep neural network inversion on map-based 4D seismic data for pressure and saturation. We present a novel neural network architecture that trains on synthetic data and provides insights into observed field […]

Geysers in Slow Motion

Geysirs are a force of nature. Even as a kid I knew about Old Faithful and mind you it’s across the Atlantic for me. A natural system that produces a clock like massive effect just seems magical. Luckily, the YouTube channel “Slow Mo Guys” went to Iceland and filmed a Geysir. The name may give […]

Dipping your Toes – Machine Learning for Geoscientists

My fellow students know this and I hope recruiters will never read this: I was never good at math in university. It was only later when it came to the application in actual geophysical problems that tensors, linear algebra, and differential equations clicked. Personally, I don’t recommend this, as it makes life unnecessarily hard. Machine […]
