Machine Learning Essentials for Seismic Interpretation (with certification)

What 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?
