Enhanced geological data interpretation thanks to artificial intelligence platform
Eni announces the first results of a multiyear collaboration using artificial intelligence (AI) by launching the research platform “Cognitive Discovery” in cooperation with IBM. The objective of the new platform is to support Eni's decision-making during the initial stages of exploration phase, in order to significantly reduce the exploration risks linked to geological complexity. This research tool provides the geoscientists with relevant information to support the identification and verification of possible alternative scenarios with the aid of AI. The "Cognitive Discovery" processes large amounts of data and produces a more realistic and precise representation of the geological models. Eni’s Cognitive Discovery is running on premise on an IBM HPC Power 9 cluster installed in the Eni Green Data Center located in Ferrera Erbognone, Pavia, Italy.
