Looking forward to presenting at the Finding Petroleum conference on the 23rd March 2020 at the Geological Society of London. http://www.findingpetroleum.com/event/Investing-in-North-Sea-projects-and-technology/f1404.aspx Abstract Most of the published literature on text mining in exploration geoscience focuses on extraction of data or concepts typically in the sentence or document 'container'. There are no known approaches that look for... Continue Reading →
The Search Insights Report 2020 is out. This has been produced by The Search Network as a service to the search community. There is no charge and no sponsorship. I was honoured to be asked to contribute an article which opens the report. Download the 54 page PDF with the link below: Search Insights 2020_The... Continue Reading →
The pace of Natural Language Processing (NLP) developments continues to accelerate. Very interesting article and research from Google released this month using their massive Colossal Clean Crawled Corpus (C4). Worth a read! Exploring Transfer Learning with T5: the Text-To-Text Transfer Transformer. https://ai.googleblog.com/2020/02/exploring-transfer-learning-with-t5.html
First advert for the OpportunityFinder algorithm on the back cover of the new issue of Digital Energy Journal.
Predicting hydrocarbon plays from text using machine learning and natural language processing. I recently tested the OpportunityFinder Algorithm on a selection of public domain geoscience literature. Only literature published between 1990 to 2010 was used, some time before a major gas discovery was made in the area. The hypothesis was whether the algorithm could surface... Continue Reading →
Happy New Year everyone! A light hearted look at enterprise search evolution to start the New Year. This is an extended summary, the full article will be published in "Search Insights" in March 2020 including the link to digital transformation. The Cambrian explosion occurred more than 500 million years ago, a rapid burst that diversified... Continue Reading →
Artificial Intelligence - Finding new hydrocarbon plays within unstructured text (papers, reports and presentations). Tech start-up Infoscience Technologies reached a milestone this week with its OpportunityFinder® algorithm. The algorithm makes use of ensemble machine learning models and now over 10,000+ (Ten Thousand) individual clues for identifying potential evidence for source rock, maturation, migration, reservoir, trap,...

It's not year end quite yet, but surprised to see visitors to my blog surge past last years total, going past 8,000 this week. I was invited to write my thoughts on the 'future of search' in the enterprise by 'The Search Network' recently. It will be published in 'Search Insights' early 2020. Search engines...
