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 […]

Keynote Bonanza and No Coffee – The EAGE / PESGB ML Workshop

Last month EAGE and PESGB organized the first machine learning workshop in geoscience in Europe. Clearly, I had every intention of going. And obviously, I met many of my favourite co-conspirators there, when I did. The workshop was divided between a day of keynotes and a day of technical talks. The keynotes accompanied the PETEX […]

Cheaper Deep Learning by Transfer Learning Cats to Seismic [SEG Conference 2018]

This years SEG I got the opportunity to present some of my work on transfer learning. In automatic seismic interpretation, progress is preceived as incremental already, although the field has only been established fairly recently. It was shown with new deep neural networks, usually convolutional neural networks, that reproducing human seismic interpretation is possible. This […]

Preprints – What’s the worst that could happen?

Early career scientists are laying the building blocks of their career. Giving away your best ideas for free and everyone to read can seem risky. Pre-prints, on the surface, may look just like that, but are they? Pre-print servers like EarthArXiv are sprouting in many scientific disciplines. They proclaim the benefits of research being cited […]
