Geoscience Digital Transformation – Text Mining Presentation 23rd March 2020, Geol Society of London


Looking forward to presenting at the Finding Petroleum conference on the 23rd March 2020 at the Geological Society of London.


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 combinatorial patterns within and across documents, that may indicate an opportunity (such as a hydrocarbon play, lead or idea). A ‘DNA profiling’ inspired data science technique combining machine learning and natural language processing will be presented. These techniques may facilitate data driven ideation for the geoscientist and stimulate a line of thought that would not have otherwise occurred had it not been for the algorithm.
