Deep Learning Geoscience Named Entity Recognition

We are using Deep Learning to leverage the unique 45,000 petroleum system related textual clues in OpportunityFinder®.

Designed for automation, the clues combined with auto-annotation of millions of sentences allow a deep learning model to generalise (learn). This enables the detection of valid clues in geoscience text (reports, presentations, papers) not present in the original lexicon.

Whilst an algorithm will never read text like a Geoscientist, we can teach it some elements. The advantage is reading differently to us, and processing larger volumes than any person can read.

This allows us to detect evidence, join the dots and stimulate business ideas we may not have had without the assistance of the algorithm.
