Date Time Duration Register by Location
TBA TBA TBA   Valhall-Ptil



Natural language processing is currently experiencing a massive breakthrough in adoption in traditional industrial sectors like e.g. banking, medicine or insurance industries.  

It is a key tool to quickly assess large amounts of unstructured text. Numerous open source models are available and are being actively developed by a large community of linguists and computer scientists. Unfortunately the progress of this technology has not been harvested fully by the geoscience and subsurface domains yet. 

The workshop has the aim of creating a forum for people who want to learn more about Natural Language Processing and geoscience  or Oil/Gas industry texts as well as learning how it could be applied to our problems.
