IN THE INDUSTRY
Equinor Sets Sights on Natural Language Processing With Startup Nesh
New funding for a chatbot technology, or smart assistant, represents the latest development in the Norwegian operator’s drive toward digitalization.
Shell Deploys AR Headsets To Facilities in 12 Countries
This digital deal is helping to make augmented reality a new reality for oil and gas operations.
Integrating Geomechanical Data Optimizes Completions Design
This paper demonstrates how engineers can take advantage of their most-detailed completions and geomechanical data by identifying trends arising from past detailed treatment analyses.
The Path to Artificial Super Intelligence
Dubbed the technology of the decade, AI has been the catchphrase on every futurist’s tongue. From customer support chatbots to smart assistants, AI has begun to transform numerous industry verticals.
Souped-Up Search Engines Wrangle Drilling, Completions Data
Fed by big data loads from big operators, a university consortium and software firm are each working to make upstream data access as quick and easy as a Google search.
Is the Cloud Mature Enough for High-Performance Computing?
Data volumes are growing at an exponential rate. How can high-performance computing solutions help operators manage these volumes? Will faster, stronger processors and cloud computing solutions be the answer?
GHGSat Readies Launch of Second Emissions-Monitoring Satellite
The new satellite will build on the success of the company's demonstration satellite Claire, which has performed over 2,500 observations of oil and gas facilities as well as other natural and industrial sources of carbon dioxide and methane.
Digital Transformation Pushes Companies To Rethink How They Work
With new digital platforms and technologies driving the industry in the near future, organizations are examining the ways in which their established work flows may help or hinder their ability to adopt and adapt.
Oil Companies Must Learn To Share
Like a fast-declining oil well, the value of propriety software is short-lived. Technological advances drive down the value of programs, many of which were never unique.
DeepMind and Google: The Battle To Control Artificial Intelligence
AGI stands for artificial general intelligence, a hypothetical computer program that can perform intellectual tasks as well as, or better than, a human. AGI will make today’s most advanced AIs look like pocket calculators.
Harnessing Organizational Knowledge for Machine Learning
In collaboration with Stanford University and Brown University, Google explores how existing knowledge in an organization can be used as noisier, higher-level supervision—or, as it is often termed, weak supervision—to quickly label large training data sets.
Collaboration Redefines the Human/Robot Relationship
Robots have been a part of industrial production for decades, but the interface between humans and robots has changed as automation technologies increased in complexity, scope, and scale. Once a novelty, collaborative robots are projected to become a significant element of the automation landscape.
