SparkCognition, sponsors Machine Learning in Oil and Gas


SparkCognition is the world’s first Cognitive Security Analytics company. We’re applying Machine Learning & AI to Cloud Security and the Internet of Things. In this new world, where data is abundant, unintelligent software cannot be expected to respond to critical scenarios that may evolve rapidly, or make use of new opportunities when they surface for a fleeting instant. This is where software-enabled Cognition comes in. SparkCognition’s platform is built on patent-pending Pattern Recognition & Machine Learning techniques that enable unparalleled Cognitive capability. When exposed to security data, we can find patterns of attack, identify vectors, model attacker behavior and much more. Because it’s Cloud-Born, SparkCognition’s platform aggregates its learning at a faster pace than any human or legacy software system. It not only gains more experience, it actually increases its intelligence and capability. Over time, it will answer questions that, today, only a handful of elite security experts could address. And beyond that, it will only get smarter.

NVIDIA, sponsors Machine Learning in Oil and Gas


Multi-GPU Technology boosts scalability through the use of two or more professional GPUs for visualization and heavy computation. This improves real-time calculation of seismic trace attributes and visual analysis of complex regional basins right at the interpreter’s desk. The result is dramatically reduced model processing cycle times and sharper images of region-of-interest datasets leading to more effective lease bidding, higher service revenues, and ultimately greater chances of striking oil. http://www.nvidia.com/object/ai-accelerated-analytics
