About this Research Topic
At present, the application of geological big data, deep learning, and machine learning in petroleum geology is limited due to various types and different amounts of geological data and incomplete data mining technology. Machine learning, deep learning, data mining, and other technologies have shown great potential in diagenetic facies identification using well logging data, geological modeling of sand bodies and other fields. However, the application of deep learning, machine learning and other technologies remains limited in petroleum geology. In addition, the representativeness of training data sets of deep learning, machine learning and other techniques is also hindering more widespread application in petroleum geology. It's worth noting that, some new numerical simulation methods can be used to establish training data sets, which is one of the considered topics.
Therefore, this special issue focuses on “Application of AI and Geological Big Data in Petroleum Geology”. We especially welcome the following content, but are not limited to them:
A. Research on the application of deep learning, machine learning and other emerging technologies and algorithms in petroleum geology
B. How to improve the generalization ability of deep learning, machine learning and other algorithms in petroleum geology;
C. Deep learning, machine learning, and other emerging technologies and algorithms in 3D geological modeling.
D. The application of emerging numerical simulation technology in petroleum geology, and its significance to the application of AI technologies in petroleum geology.
Keywords: Geological Big Data, Data Mining, Machine learning, Deep learning, Petroleum Geology
