Machine Learning Workshop - Calgary

Machine Learning Workshop - Calgary
Please join us on October 25-26, 2018, for a two day Machine Learning Workshop with Lewis Matthews and his team from West Texas Data Science Institute.
This class will focus on how to apply machine learning techniques to petrophysical and geological problems where students will walk away from the class with actual code and real data to start playing around with work-related problems. If you aren’t familiar with programming this is a great opportunity to learn and if you aren’t familiar with machine learning then you are about to discover it isn’t rocket science (when it works). There are limited spots available for this Workshop - book early to save your place.

Lewis Matthews was born and raised in the United Kingdom of Great Britain. At the age of 17 he emigrated to the USA and enlisted in the United States Navy where he served for 9 years as a Corpsman with Marines. Since then Lewis has received several degrees including  economics, geology, and an MS in geophysics and seismology during which he independently discovered fractal clustering in petrophysical logs. He currently works for CrownQuest Operating as a data scientist where he evangelizes solutions to complex problems. To encourage understanding and broad collaboration across companies Lewis teaches machine learning applications for oil and gas problems. These workshops have proven to be incredibly popular and helpful to enhance the general understanding of the strengths and limits of these incredibly hyped technologies.


This Workshop will take place at the Ramada Plaza Calgary Downtown - 708 8th Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta T2P 1H2.
