I’m a researcher at SINTEF. I’m studying oil well drilling and trying to develop alarm systems that will give advance warning about drilling problems. Our current approach is to combine physical models of the well and drillstring with methods from machine learning (or artificial intelligence) such as neural networks and approaches in time series analysis.
I’ll be mostly writing about things I come across in my work and spare time, that’s related to drilling or machine learning. Apart from that, this blog isn’t tied up with SINTEF and any opinions expressed here are of course my own and not necessarily those of SINTEF.
