Getting Started with Deep Learning: one-day seminar

Book online

Deep Learning (DL) is already bringing game-changing applications to the petroleum industry, and this is certainly the beginning of an enduring trend. Many petroleum engineers are interested to know more about DL, but are not sure where to start. This one-day course aims to provide this introduction.

The first half of the course presents the formalism of Logistic Regression, Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks and some of their applications. In the afternoon, the environment associated with DL is discussed, from Python libraries to software repositories, important websites and big datasets available on the Web.
The last part of the course is spent discussing the most promising subsurface applications of DL.

This course, aimed at petroleum engineers and geoscientists, requires basic knowledge of Probability, Regression and Linear Algebra.
