9:00 - 9:30 "Data Science in the Energy Sector"
Data science and decision support is nothing new to the oil and gas industry. Most companies in the industry have long relied on large quantities of data to make decisions. Oil producers can capture more detailed data in real time at lower costs and from previously inaccessible areas, to improve oilfield and plant performance.
Every part of an O&G organization can be optimized with data science. Upstream producers have many decisions to make, whether it be what well to drill into or when to turn their drills off. Using predictive analytics can help oil producers save significant dollars on the bottom line and increase operational efficiency.
Midstream practitioners can use data analytics in real time to optimize how their product gets from point A to point B. This will allow oil and gas companies to achieve higher levels or customer satisfaction while decreasing inefficiency.
The downstream organization can also benefit greatly from data science. The use cases are quite varied, everything ranging from customer behavior analytics to pricing and revenue optimization. Early adopters of data science in downstream will see a significant competitive advantage.
9:30 - 10:00 "Alluvium and the Machine Intelligence Braid: Data Streams, AI, and Human Expertise"
The future of business will depend on technologies and services that can seamlessly integrate high velocity streaming data, machine intelligence at the edge, and active learning from human experts.
Come join us to discuss an argument that the commodity stack of technologies, and the methods for enabling business through machine intelligence and AI, are fundamentally flawed for the rising tide of data streaming from connected machines. We will show how Alluvium's approach is different, and provide several examples of how our core technology platform, Floodplain, has provided value to many different industries.

10:00 - 10:30 Break
10:30 - 11:00 "Industrial Machine Learning as a Key Tool in Oil and Gas"
Presented by : Kenneth Smith- Hortonworks and Dr. Arvind Battula, Sr. Data Scientist- Schlumberger
11:00 - 11:30 "To Be or Not To Be a Citizen Data Scientist"
Data science, a rapidly growing field with a gaping skills shortage, is crucial for the success of a data-driven organization. Data scientists bring a unique blend of business acumen, the ability to acquire and prepare data for analysis, and analytical skills to extract business insights.
Join us to see how TIBCO Spotfire® bridges the skills gap and empowers business users with the best domain knowledge to become citizen data scientists and how to effectively use Spotfire and TERR with big data sources to maximize your investments and generate significant value.
1:00 - 1:30 "Drones in Oil & Gas"
