Computational Geoscience Training Course & Hackathon


 London 23 – 25 Nov – Venue TBC

Aberdeen 16-18 Nov Nov – Venue TBC

A weekend of creative scientific invention, building new tools that apply machine learning to the subsurface.

A scientific hackathon is an event in which domain experts and programmers collaborate intensively on scientific and software projects. Because participants work in teams, and because there are so many tasks to perform in a limited time, anyone can contribute.

The events we are bringing to the UK petroleum exploration community will focus on solving subsurface problems with machine learning, and the goal will be to design and prototype new technology that solves a hard problem in our field. The two events will be held in November in Aberdeen and London. Each will span three days.

The details are still being worked out, but the events will look something like this:

Friday, 8am till 5pm: Python and machine learning bootcamp (optional)
Friday, 6pm till 9pm: Hackathon project definition.
Saturday, 8am till 6pm: Hacking!
Sunday, 8am till 3pm: Hacking!
Sunday, 3pm till 6pm: Demos, judging, and prizes.

Free hands-on training course on computational geoscience for subsurface professionals.

 In association with PETEX 2018, Agile Scientific is running two hands-on geocomputing training courses.

As part of its commitment to digital transformation and maximising economic recovery of the UKCS, the Oil & Gas Authority is offering 40 free places on Agile’s Geocomputing training class. The course will run in Croydon (24th – 28th September 2018) and in Aberdeen (1st – 5th September 2018) so you can choose the location best for you.

Later in the autumn, Agile also holding two hackathons. These will also take place in Aberdeen and London. Further details will follow but you can sign up now to be notified when registration opens for these events. Find out more.
