Sentiment Analysis Geoscience in the news.

Sentiment analysis of the last ten years of Guardian news articles mentioning geoscience. Geoscience is often mentioned in context to natural geohazards. However, there might be a trend towards increasing negative sentiment over time that may warrant further exploration. #geosciences #naturallanguageprocessing #oilandgas #mining #hydrogeology #geohazards

Mining Geoscience Text from the Geological Survey of Queensland for hidden Geo-Resource evidence

Text mining algorithms were used to discover hidden geo-resource (metals, elements, minerals) associations in reports, maps, sketches and logs from the archives of the Geological Survey of Queensland in Australia. The Geological Survey of Queensland have made a number of excellent improvements recently increasing the accessibility of these data. A subset of report packages over... Continue Reading →

Using Artificial Intelligence for native hydrogen exploration in the subsurface.

Using Artificial Intelligence to search for native hydrogen in the subsurface. Australian exploration company Buru Energy have chosen Infoscience Technologies OpportunityFinder®algorithm to detect evidence for potential native hydrogen in historical documentation. Native hydrogen occurrences have been accidentally discovered historically, but little to no efforts have been made to target it industrially. Where appropriate, the use... Continue Reading →

Largest Petroleum Systems Taxonomy and NLP machine learning training sets in the industry

The OpportunityFinder® algorithm has now exceeded 50,000 terms in its lexicon for detecting petroleum systems automatically in text. This is combined with hundreds of thousands of labelled data for machine learning. These can support laser like tasks, improve search & discovery, insights, knowledge mining and also support the tuning of very large language models.

Comparing patterns of potential source rocks in text by geological age to their contribution in actual producing oil and gas fields.

Some research I conducted recently comparing the counts of potential oil and gas source rock "mentions" by geological age in unstructured text, to some (rather old) actual data published in the literature on the age of hydrocarbons generated from source rocks in producing oil & gas fields. Over 48,000 terms from a lexicon were applied to... Continue Reading →
