More than 60 people, including representatives from eight sponsor companies, attended the Spring Sponsor Meeting of the Texas Consortium for Computational Seismology (TCCS) in Houston on April 18. The meeting, convened at the Bureau of Economic Geology's Houston Research Center, was presided over by Bureau postdoctoral fellow Xinming Wu.
Nine research presentations by TCCS contributors covered three primary themes: seismic interpretation with deep learning, well-log and seismic data processing with deep learning, and methods from acquisition to processing. Talks included “Automatic seismic interpretation: from conventional to deep learning,” “Deep learning for seismic imaging,” and “Probabilistic diffraction imaging.” Along with Wu, presenters included Yunzhi Shi, Zhicheng Geng, Nam Pham, Harpreet Kaur, Raymond Abma, Luke Decker, and Ben Gremillion.
TCCS is a joint initiative of the Bureau and the Center for Numerical Analysis at UT Austin’s Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES). The TCCS mission is to address the most important and challenging research problems in computational geophysics confronting the energy industry while educating the next generation of research geophysicists and computational scientists.
