Instructor(s): Rocky Roden
Total classroom time: 1 hour

This course will initially wade through the vernacular of Machine Learning and Data Science as it relates to the geoscientist.  An overview of how these methods are being employed, as well as, interpretation case studies of different machine learning applications will be presented. An overview of how high-performance computing and the utilization of Cloud Services related to Machine Learning will be described.


Machine Learning is a disruptive technology that holds great promise and this course will be presented from an interpreter’s perspective, not a data scientist. This course will provide an understanding of how Machine Learning for interpretation is being utilized today and provide insights on future directions and trends.
