Speaker:  Dr. Lei Huang, Asst. Professor, Prairie View A&M

The Cloud Computing Research Lab at Prairie View A&M University has been working on developing a scalable cloud platform for seismic data analytics to facilitate a variety of interpretation scenarios.  The recognition of 3D complex geological features in noisy seismic datasets is a daunting challenge in pattern recognition. Early experience shows that traditional machine learning techniques such as Support Vector Machines (SVMs) and Logistic Regression may be insufficient for this task. We will present our experience of building a deep learning based seismic data analytics platform on top of Apache Spark and Google TensorFlow, and demonstrate the early results of applying Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) on a geological fault detection case study. Moreover, we will also present the collaborative work with FEI on applying remote visualization technology to large seismic datasets that are distributed in the Spark environment. The work is sponsored by National Science Foundation.
