We are working on a machine-learning project with Rock Solid Images (RSI), a geoscience consulting firm that provides borehole characterisation with the goal of reducing exploration drilling risk for oil and gas companies.
RSI is one of the main players in the interpretation of seismic data with well log data and it has built its business on using advanced rock physics methods combined with sophisticated geologic models to deliver highly reliable predictions of where oil and gas might be found.

Fringe events are key to the success of Datafest, and with over 40 running across Scotland there was plenty to choose from. We ran a small event to deliver key insights on the new developments in the application of supercomputing to large-scale data analytics and machine learning. Our colleagues gave a series of talks and attendees also had an opportunity to see a live supercomputer in action via Wee Archie. The event allowed for plenty of questions and in-depth conversations, notably around deep learning and using neural networks to solve real-life problems. It closed with Dr Adam Carter providing some further details on what makes a data scientist, and the various routes to development and further training.
