Schlumberger and Dataiku have entered into an exclusive technology partnership on Dec. 11 that will enable the E&P industry to build and deploy their own artificial intelligence (AI) solutions across the full breadth of their upstream workflows within the DELFI* cognitive E&P environment.
The partnership will deliver unprecedented capabilities to petrotechnical domain experts in response to global demand for AI, bridging the gap between machine learning and domain expertise to enable better insights. The industry will have access to an innovation platform where data scientists—experts in the development of AI solutions—can accelerate the deployment of new solutions across their organizations. In addition, making Dataiku technology available in the DELFI environment equips petrotechnical experts to build and extend workflows by leveraging machine learning and data science capabilities that are supported by a rich algorithm library.
Combining existing Schlumberger digital tools and solutions with the proven enterprise AI technology from Dataiku means a ready-to-deploy full machine learning solution will be available at enterprise scale to the E&P industry.
“The technology partnership between Dataiku and Schlumberger will accelerate innovation in our industry. Democratizing AI at enterprise scale enables our customers to rapidly create new ways of working to gain powerful new insights from their planning and operations data and workflows,” Trygve Randen, president, Software Integrated Solutions, Schlumberger, said.
“We are empowering industry professionals who have first-hand understanding of E&P challenges with the ability to amplify differentiation by creating impactful, fit-for-purpose AI solutions themselves. The ability to prototype, prove and deploy innovative solutions across oil and gas operations is now a possibility for all,” Randen added.
