Geophysical Insights offers e-courses on AI and Seismic Interpretation without charge to support the industry
Houston, 8 May 2020 – Geophysical Research, LLC (d/b/a Geophysical Insights), publisher of the Paradise AI workbench, is making their product independent e-courses on AI and seismic interpretation available without charge to anyone interested over the next 60 days. The company is taking this step to support the worldwide oil and gas and academic communities, which have been impacted by both the COVID 19 pandemic and the drop in demand for hydrocarbons. The company sees this as a time when industry professionals, professors, and students may have time to enhance their knowledge of the applications of machine learning and deep learning technologies to seismic interpretation.
The three e-Learning courses offered include:
- Machine Learning Essentials for Seismic Interpretation (with or without certification)
- Seismic Attributes for the Environment of Deposition
- Energy Absorption and Traveling Waves

”We are delighted to make this investment in the lives of individuals in our industry during this unprecedented period”, says Tom Smith, President/CEO of Geophysical Insights. “We invite whoever is interested to access our e-courses and this opportunity to sharpen and obtain a certification in these 21st-century technologies, which will change how hydrocarbons are discovered, developed, and monetized sustainably.”
About Geophysical Insights
Geophysical Insights was founded in 2008 by Dr. Tom Smith with the vision of applying machine learning methods to geologic interpretation to reduce the risk of exploration and the cost of field development. The mission of the business is to develop the next generation of interpretation tools in an intuitive interface that uses guided ThoughtFlows®, which can be used by all interpreters. Over three years in development, Paradise was launched at the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Annual Convention in 2013 and has been adopted by the International Oil Companies (IOCs) and National Oil Companies (NOCs) worldwide since its launch. Geophysical Insights continues to build machine learning capabilities in the Paradise workbench, which is proving to reveal deeper insights into the seismic response. With adaptive algorithms that learn from the data that are enabled by multi-core CPU and GPU computing, interpreters can extract more information from seismic and well data than would otherwise be possible from traditional interpretation tools.
