Dallas/ Fort Worth Data Management Q4 Luncheon 2019

Dallas/ Fort Worth Data Management Q4 Luncheon 2019
Join us for the Dallas/ Fort Worth Data Management Luncheon on December 11, 2019. This event is eligible for one CPDA Professional Development Unit.

PPDM Association Events are specifically designed to facilitate collaborative idea sharing, discussion, and networking. Learn from your colleagues’ experiences, ask questions, build relationships and make key face-to-face connections. Engage in dynamic sessions and attend an information packed presentation.


Bill Barna, Principal Architect for Microsoft
will present a talk entitled:
"Geospatial Intelligence"

The Permian Basin spans 86,000 square miles, two states, and has thousands of leases and operators.  Individual operators manage and protect their assets by installing IoT sensors and cameras.  By using cloud computing, edge computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) operators can ingest, process, and analyze the vast amounts of data generated by these technologies.  However, coverage is limited.  Operators can only install cameras and sensors on their own property.  Cameras have limited fields of view and there are limits to the number of IoT sensors that can be installed.   A more holistic approach is needed.  In this presentation, the speaker will show how time series satellite imagery and neural network-based models can be used to predict fracking operations.  With an early warning system, operators can protect their assets from another company’s frac job. Predicting frac jobs is just one example of the value of this process.  As satellite imagery resolution improves, more advanced use cases will become possible including auditing oil field asset inventories
