This Course promises to be the most comprehensive and yet tutorial that's available in this ever-expanding field.

Course Outline:  
 Part 1: Introduction Part 8: Kernel Regression & Its Application to
 Part 2: Linear Regression               Seismic Reservoir Analysis
 Part 3: Gradient Descent Part 9: Inversion Versus Machine Learning
 Part 4: Linear Classification Part 10: Kernel Classification & Its Application
 Part 5: The Single-Layer Perceptron &                To Seismic Reservoir Analysis
              The Pereceptron Learning Rule Part 11: Unsupervised Learning
 Part 6: Multi-layer Neural Networks & Part 12: Convolution Neural Networks 
              Back Propagation Part 13: Other Machine Learning Methods
 Part 7: Deep Learning Conclusions and References


It is our intention to provide you with all the necessary tools to enable you to build an ML/AL program for your own use, a company need, or perhaps an application for a client. Later, we will provide a course in Python coding toward that goal. Stay tuned.


Speaker Biography: Brian Russell
Brian joined Chevron Standard as an exploration geophysicist in Calgary 1975 and worked for Chevron Geophysical in Houston, and Teknica and Veritas in Calgary before co-founding Hampson-Russell Software with Dan Hampson in 1987.  Hampson-Russell is now a subsidiary of GeoSoftware in Calgary, where Brian is Vice President.  He is a Past-President of both the CSEG and SEG and has received Honorary Membership from both societies, as well as the Cecil Green Enterprise Award from SEG and the CSEG Medal. He was also awarded Honorary Membership from the Geophysical Society of Houston (GSH).   Brian holds a B.Sc. from the University of Saskatchewan, a M.Sc. from Durham University, U.K., and a Ph.D. from the University of Calgary, all in geophysics.  He is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Earth, Energy, and Environment at the University of Calgary and affiliated with the CREWES Consortium.
