What To Do When Data Is Scarce: Data Augmentation for Drilling Data

Recorded On: 05/28/2020

The success of machine learning in areas like computer vision, speech recognition and text mining has attracted the attention of other problem domains. In particular, drilling automation has had a significant increase in the application of machine learning during the last five years. An important aspect to consider for the use of a machine learning approach is the data availability. Techniques like deep learning require a considerable amount of data. Unfortunately, drilling data is not always available at the required volume. For this case, it is possible to increase the quantity of data by means of data augmentation. In this talk, we will describe what is data augmentation and some available methods. We will focus on a couple of techniques which could be useful for augmenting drilling data. A use case will be present to show how it could be applied to drilling data.
