A Hybrid AI Approach to Optimizing Oil Field Planning

What’s the best way to arrange wells in an oil or gas field? It’s a simple enough question, but the answer can be very complex. Now a Cal Tech/JPL spinoff is developing a new approach that blends traditional HPC simu Read more…

Texas A&M Reinforcement Learning Algorithm Automates Oil and Gas Reserve Forecasting

Oil and gas extraction is a messy business, not least because much of the initial discovery process relies on educated guesswork that often proves fruitless. O&G companies are always searching for ways to reduce thes Read more…

Death, Taxes, and the ‘AI Economist’

Economists, fond of their models, may have another AI-based tool for designing new tax policies that address growing economic inequality while attempting to boost the productivity that would give new meaning to the aphor Read more…

Why Every Python Developer Will Love Ray

There are many reasons why Python has emerged as the number one language for data science. It's easy to get started and relatively forgiving for beginners, yet it's also powerful and extensible enough for experts to take Read more…

Putting Continual Learning on AI’s Map

The capability of a machine to "learn" on its own is the subject of some debate. With traditional supervised machine learning, decisions can be optimized, but the machine isn't really learning by itself. Now a startup ca Read more…

The Smart Object Ecosystem Is The New AI Workbench

AI is becoming so interwoven into the physical world that it’s less and less of a surprise when some inanimate object spontaneously interacts with us as if it had a mind of its own. Autonomous operation is AI-driven Read more…
