Machine Learning Essentials for Seismic Interpretation (with certification)

Machine learning is foundational to the digital transformation of the oil & gas industry and will have a dramatic impact on the exploration and production of hydrocarbons.  Dr. Tom Smith, the founder and CEO of Geophysical Insights, conducts a comprehensive survey of machine learning technology and its applications to seismic interpretation in this 24-part series.  Machine learning is presented in a clear, cogent way that identifies a whole new set of tools that will transform interpretation workflows.  Using machine learning technology, geoscientists and engineers will operate on data at a level of insight that promises to reduce risks and identify features that might otherwise be missed.

In this course, you will learn:

  • What is machine learning and how does it apply to seismic exploration and unconventional resource development?
  • What is the difference between supervised and unsupervised machine learning?
  • When is an analysis statistical and when is it machine learning?
  • What is attribute space and what is the mathematical foundation of this technology?
  • How do you know if the results are any good?
  • What are some case histories that illustrate machine learning principles?
  • What are some practical tips?

Certification options

Machine Learning Essentials can be taken either with or without certification.  The certification requires correct answers to 80% or greater of the questions at the end of each of the four major sections; however, you may take the quizzes as often as you like.  The course contains a total of 88 questions divided up in four sections, one for each unit. The certificate of completion will be sent by email upon successful completion of the course. Please see the non-certification course below if you prefer to take the course without the certification.

Seismic Attributes for the Environment of Deposition – Video Course

The evaluation of seismic attributes is a powerful tool in the interpretation of different geologic environments of deposition.  Seismic attributes, specifically geometric and spectral decomposition attributes, provide a framework for interpreting geologic features that define depositional environments.  This video course identifies the appropriate seismic attributes for various geologic settings and describes how these attributes are applied. Lecture and demonstrations cover the use of attributes in interpretation workflows and manipulate attribute parameters to highlight geologic features.  The last video segment of the course describes how sets of attributes are analyzed and classified using multi-attribute, Machine Learning processes to extract more information from the seismic response.

In this 10-part video series, leading experts demonstrate the applications of attributes.  The $99 registration fee allows access to all course content for 7 days.
