# How do we thrive in the AI industrial revolution?

Our world is changing and skilled workers are being replaced by intelligent systems. Where do the strengths of humans lie? Working in ML and taking the stage, whenever anyone lets me, I am no stranger to the question: What is AI good at? What are humans good at? So I was invited to give a […]

# 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 […]

# 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 […]

# Breaking the Walls of Subsurface Energy in Aarhus

How do you make science outreach, when your topic is not “sexy”? I work in hydrocarbons. I don’t cure HIV. I don’t work with 2D materials or machine learning (yet). So how do you talk about the awesome work you do in 3 minutes on a public stage? Falling Walls Lab Aarhus Aarhus set the […]

The internet is a wonderful place. Information is a press of the finger away. We can retrieve scientific papers in seconds. We can connect to others, exchange ideas and collaborate. Here are some of my favorite ways. An Update on RSS Of course, this is not it. In my first post on geo-awesomeness, I gathered […]

# Scientific Conferences on a Budget

Conferences are an important part of the world of science and technology. We get to publish preliminary results and bounce them off of our colleagues (or sometimes strongest competitors). It’s time for networking and also helps to take a break from the lab grind. But conferences take a huge burden on our budget. We have […]

# My Interview with the EAGE about the Way of the Geophysicist

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) interviewed me. It appears in the 2015 edition of their student newsletter. My fellow students already asked me about it and now you can read it online! I enjoyed talking in the interview with Kirsten Brandt and I do hope more opportunities like this may arise. Interview: Blogging his way […]

# New on StackExchange: Temporal Resolution of Seismic data

Radius of the Fresnel zone is given by $Rf=(v/2)(t_0/f_\mathrm{dom})^{1/2}$ where v: velocity of layer $t_0$: two way travel time $f_\mathrm{dom}$ :dominant frequency in the spectrum This shows that high frequencies give better resolution than lower frequencies and resolution deteriorates with depth and increasing velocities. However I found some text in “Seismic Data Analysis- Yilmaz” which […]

# Do we even need math? – Calculus in geophysics and geology

The amount of calculus in geophysics and geology degrees varies throughout every university and even in uni itself, there seldomly is a consensus on how much math is actually needed. Jascha Polet from Cal Poly Pomona asked a very interesting question on Twitter: Should every student who graduates from a Geology (not Env Sciences) MSc […]

# Lying with statistics.

You can see it quite often today, that an essential part of an axis is missing. I usually think highly critical of not showing your entire plot. Finally someone has made the appropriate visualization about lying with statistics. Baseline matters via Flowing Data from Reddit
