NETL Geo-Data Science Innovations Featured at Major Geophysical Conference

NETL researchers will share their internationally recognized geo-data science and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) expertise through an invited talk and other sessions during the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dec. 13-17.

Kelly Rose, geo-data scientist and technical director for the Lab’s Science-based Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Institute (SAMI), will share her group’s work blending geoscience with AI and ML during a session at 1:45 p.m. ET, Wednesday, Dec. 15. This innovative work is advancing energy, environmental justice, climate, data management and resource characterization applications.   

Rose’s invited talk, titled “Improving Prediction of Subsurface Properties Using Geoscience Informed, Multi-Technique, Artificial Intelligence Approach,” will cover how advancements in data science and AI techniques have significant potential to improve analysis and prediction of subsurface properties, even in areas with limited pre-existing data.

“AI can help scientists consume and appropriately find, extract and utilize larger amounts of data and knowledge than a single person or team alone can handle,” Rose said. “Also, these AI tools and capabilities can be utilized to help identify patterns and trends faster and more thoroughly than traditional methods afford. When paired with a geologist or team’s expertise of the subsurface, these AI-informed models provide new ways to explore and analyze Earth science systems. This supervised approach is often key when using AI for complex, uncertain systems like the subsurface.”

NETL’s SAMI-affiliated experts will present several poster sessions throughout the week on geo-science and AI/ML topics, including offshore geohazard and climate modeling; use of AI to forecast energy infrastructure longevity and risks to prevent failures like spills and emissions; data search, transformation and curation to improve access and reuse of subsurface data; AI modeling to improve subsurface reservoir and property predictions for carbon storage, induced seismicity, and other applications.

A full list of SAMI-related sessions follow. Clicking the links will take you to the AGU website to read an abstract and see when each presentation is occurring.

The AGU Fall Meeting unites more than 25,000 attendees from more than 100 countries in the Earth and space sciences community to share scientific findings and identify innovative solutions.
