The offshore oil and gas industry has changed rapidly in recent years, with new technologies being adopted by the energy sector to meet the challenges of a digital economic landscape. Artificial intelligence is an exciting new technological field, but what uses could it have for oil and gas? Umar Ali explores the applications of artificial intelligence in the offshore oil and gas industry.
What is artificial intelligence?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a diverse scientific field, but within the oil and gas industry there are two primary applications of the technology: machine learning and data science.
Machine enables computer systems to learn from and interpret data without human input, refining the process through iterations to produce programs tailored to specific purposes. Within the offshore oil and gas industry, this allows companies to monitor complex internal operations and respond quickly to concerns that human operators may not have been able to detect.
