ElasticDocs Norway : Giving life to old, yet extremely valuable geological data

Giving life to old yet very valuable geological data is one of the things that ElasticDocs is very good at. We have recently extracted 60,000 pages and 40,000 images of unstructured data from the Northern North Sea, Central Graben, More, Voring including ancient reports from the 70s. How much our geological understanding has changed, since then? Have you missed anything that is worth an exploratory look-back?

EarthHack Joining Orientation today!

We just held the #EarthHack Joining Orientation today. We are very happy to report that the EarthHack community at this side of the world (Asia Pacific and environs), is growing. When we started to brainstorm about EarthHack with EAGE in late 2017, we really have no idea what to expect, and up until few months ago, we were challenged how to get everyone together and investigate this #machinelearninggeoscience thing-y, in a collaborative, fun and open environment.

In today’s telecon, we had participation from 25 earthhackers, with various backgrounds from geoscientists, coders, finance guys, a guy called cooldude (:) ), and more. The Slack EarthHack Community is counted at 107. Definitely theres a lot room for growth, and we look forward to more sharing, participations and discussions in the future.

The EAGE EarthHack Playbook can be found here:

The materials can also be found at the EAGE Official EarthHack page.

We also would like to thank the official sponsors: Microsoft, CGG, Aramco and collaborators: ADAX, LEAD, MDEC and Petronas for supporting this event.

ElasticDocs Survey: WordClouds

We are testing out a Word Cloud feature on ElasticDocs, and we are making a survey whether the data that we extract are relevant, or not. Most are familiar with this colorful graphics, can they be useful? - the word cloud is a extraction of the most frequently occurring terms within a set of documents, and intended to provide a "general" grasp of the topics within a specified (geological) document. The extraction is unsupervised. The samples are extracted from Well Completion Reports in Australia. We would appreciate your feedback if you found them useful. Pls message us if you are interested to review the dataset,, at info@irayaenergies.com


Earth-Hack Updates

EAGE Earth-Hack Update: We will be holding the participant's Joining Orientation next week on 23rd January! We are quite pleased to see the Earth-Hack community growing, we have now more than 65 members from very few just several months ago. We've also received quite big support from various enterprise and kindly thank Microsoft for providing the cloud compute resources for this event. We will be coming up soon with the themes shortly! Give us a shout for any geoscience problematics you want to see tackled!

Building the Machine Learning Community in Geoscience: EAGE Earth-Hack, Kuala Lumpur, Feb 2019

EAGE in collaboration with Iraya Energies is organizing the first Machine Learning Hackathon in energy geoscience in the region. Through this event, we aim to bring together industry experts, students, hackers, mentors, and geoscientists with love for the earth to explore machine learning techniques as a tool to solve industry problematics.

The EAGE ML Hackathon will be held on the 23-24 Feb, followed by the Symposium on 25-27 Feb, 2019.

Post your interests for the Hackathon here in Earth-Hack Slack workspace. We are working to build our community of earth-hackers around this region, and this is also a venue to discuss common machine-learning interests.

We welcome suggestions for problematics for the hackathon, and encourage sponsorship of open-source data that can be used by the participating teams.

EAGE link to this event can be found here.

For more information, pls do not hesitate to contact Nina Marie Hernandez at nmh@irayaenergies.com, or Irene Ng at ing@eage.org.

Hmmm just noticed, we have a lot of EAGE activities these days…

FORCE Machine Learning Symposium in Stavanger

Fantastic machine learning hackathon and symposium event in Stavanger, Norway last September 18-20, organized by FORCE, attended by more than 130+ participants.

Kim presented a demonstration of Iraya’s ElasticDocs product, an intuitive container for handling voluminous, unstructured data and enabled with digitization, natural language processing, geolocation and autoimage classification of geoscience documents including doc, pdfs, etc.

Iraya in KL

We are very proud and happy to announce that Iraya Energies is now officially in Malaysia! We are looking forward to serve the energy industry with the latest advances in machine learning techniques in geoscience. #malaysiaboleh #KLAI #canlah #machinelearning #iraya 

Opening Iraya in Kuala Lumpur is more than just a company milestone, it is a personal journey. I first came to Malaysia in 2005, barely 25 years old, probably one of the first to hold the official title of “rock physicist” in South East Asia (once, I passed thru immigration and they thought my job was to be a rock star -how cool is that). My first boss was Phil Beale in Odegaard, we were then at Wisma Selangor Dredging with our band-of-brothers/sisters, who are more than just colleagues, but are family. We then moved to Rohas Perkasa when we got acquired by SLB, where I also met and worked with many talented people where I met so many scientists under one roof. Throughout the years, I did a lot of RP works in Malay Basin, Sabah, Sarawak, then across the regions -Thailand, Indonesia, China, Philippines,Brunei,Vietnam etc., therafter I also took more business development roles. One of the greatest perks, though for me in this industry is never ceasing to learn, always keeping us on our toes to come up with something new, and with the opening Iraya in KL, I am very excited to take on this new challenge of promoting the use of machine learning in geoscience,testing it, pushing it beyond its boundaries, and making it work. I am hoping our clients will share the excitement of experimenting, innovating, and invest in making machine learning deliver for the energy industry.

The path of a startup is rarely easy, nor glamorous. To my family, friends, team, colleagues, partners, investors, clients, thank you for being a source of courage and inspiration. You are definitely a part of this journey!
