Harnessing the Power of the Beast: A Machine Learning Workshop for Geoscientists

novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

The City of Calgary announced a state of local emergency due to COVID-19 and asked businesses in Calgary to limit their occupancy to 50 per cent of their capacity and earlier this month, the Alberta government requested that all large gatherings and international events in the province be postponed or cancelled. To that effect, the CSPG/AAPG Machine Learning Workshop, originally scheduled for April 8th will be postponed.  New dates to be determined.  For a list of all postponed events, please refer to our events list

About the Workshop
Machine Learning is an increasingly important tool for geoscientists. This one-day workshop demonstrates the implementation of a tailored End-to-End Upstream E & P workflow solution using Machine Learning (ML). It is intended for basic to intermediate skill levels.

Designed to provide a baseline overview of ML, this hands-on workshop will focus on the generation of synthetic Gamma-Ray Logs by applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) Techniques.

The student will learn the various aspects of deploying this workflow in an end-to-end solution. The workshop is designed to provide an appreciation of what is possible through machine learning and to spur thought about how this evolving tool can be otherwise applied.

Why Attend this Workshop
A) Learn how to:
       • Identify use case and pain points
       • Identify and collect the relevant data
       • Build/train & test the ML model using Python
       • Validate the model results by Domain Experts
       • Build the solution and operationalize it
B) Watch a demo of a working end-to-end Machine Learning solution
C) Engage in an open discussion with like-minded professionals
D) Earn 8 APEGA CPD Credits
E) Network with peers and colleagues from the geoscience community
