Introducing the company

Infoscience Technologies Ltd is a tech start-up founded by Dr Paul Cleverley ( in Nov 2018 providing OpenSource based Algorithms, Text Analytics Research & Development to companies seeking to exploit geoscience knowledge from unstructured text.

Target industries range from geological surveys, petroleum exploration, economic mining through to geohealth and space exploration.

The company’s unique selling point is its deep geoscience domain knowledge, combined with computer science, data science, business analysis and international award winning research.

Some of the world’s largest multinationals use algorithms developed by Infoscience Technologies Ltd.


OpportunityFinder™ Patent Pending

Is a first of its kind. A transformative method that revolutionises ideation in Geoscience New Ventures Exploration and Innovation.

The algorithm detects potential Hydrocarbon Plays in unstructured text which are not explicitly stated; assisting the Geoscientist to new lines of thought not previously considered. This may lead to ideas and new business opportunities that would not have occurred without the use of the algorithm.

Using Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) the algorithm uses a unique ‘DNA’ inspired approach to identify clues buried within vast amounts of text to ‘join the dots’. Resulting output can be used to power new or existing user interfaces or populate a KnowledgeGraph.

The Python code can seamlessly plug into a company’s existing NLP pipeline on premise or cloud, making it very easy to deploy. Alternatively, it can run independently on text documents stored on a file system. Please contact us for more information.


GEOSAPIEN® – Lithostratigraphic analogues from text using machine learning (Patent Pending).

GEOCLASSIFIER® – Geoscience text classifier including Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) Machine Learning Models (using a bespoke ensemble approach).

5,000 GEOSCIENCE labelled images for training a machine learning model

OIL AND GAS TAXONOMIES – (Geoscience such as Depositional Environment, Lithology, Structural-Tectonics, Petroleum Systems, as well as Reservoir Engineering, Well, Production problems and issues.)
