Drivers of imbalance in machine learning uptake across geology and geophysics

Our Data Science Director, Samuel Fielding and Lorin Davies (Managing Director) recently authored an article for the Machine Learning special issue of First Break this September. In it they use machine learning to interrogate factors driving its uptake in various geoscience domains.

September 2019

Topics covered include visualizing discipline-specific drivers of machine learning uptake (using machine learning), and exploring different ways to facilitate machine learning in undersaturated disciplines within the geosciences.

Machine Learning augments our acquisition, preparation, and interpretation of the data, so our next great challenge is to unlock these advancements to realise the next great productivity leap in data analysis.
