He started his presentation by talking about digital transformation in the oil and gas industry. Next, Mr. Vyas discussed the basic concept of machine learning and its workflow. Mr. Vyas shared a comprehensive review with respect to the machine learning workflow, starting from data collection, data pre-processing, feature engineering, deriving interferences, data visualization, and various kinds of machine learning applications for classification, clustering, and in advance deep learning.

After that Mr. Vyas continued to explain the implementations especially, to solve the problems in the Petroleum-related industry, for example, the applications to predict reservoir properties such as permeability. Mr. Vyas also provided a detailed technical coding session to conduct machine learning methods for error minimization, model training, as well as model evaluation.

At the end of the presentation, a Q&A session was open where participants had the opportunity to ask questions either through the chat box or directly to Mr. Divyanshu Vyas. The high level of interest in the topic was demonstrated by many questions regarding the advantage and limitations of machine learning and what are the challenges in the near future. Vyas answered and discussed all questions. Before the event ended, Mr. Vyas provided a life-wise sharing session related to his pivotal action from petroleum engineering to energy data scientist enthusiast. On behalf of all students and the SPE Student Chapter at RWTH Aachen University, we would like to thank Mr. Vyas for providing valuable insights of the Application of Machine Learning in the Energy Industry and we would like to wish him all the best for his career and hope to see him again in our SPE Student Chapter.
