Discovery Analytics is our unique visual analysis methodology.

Our Analytics Accelerators are embedded with Oil & Gas best practices and customizable to meet your specific business needs.

Some data analytics software requires you to devote extra time and energy before you can do any effective analysis, but VERDAZO is no build-it-yourself toolkit like Spotfire or Tableau. It’s a fully built software application and is ready to use from day one. In fact, many users are doing effective analysis within minutes of being set up.

Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence offers you the ability to leverage the integrated datasets used across all asset life-stages. You can identify and quantify which inputs matter most for specific outcomes, determine dependencies between model inputs and develop predictive models – and that’s just the start. Machine Learning will help you take your analysis to the next level.

Machine Learning: Finding the signal or fitting the noise?

Before machine learning came along, a typical approach to building a predictive model was to develop a model that best fit the data. But will a model that best fits your data provide a good prediction? Not necessarily. Fortunately, there are machine learning practices that can help us estimate and optimize the predictive performance of models. But before we delve into that, let’s illustrate the potential problem of “overfitting” your data. Fitting the Trend vs. Overfitting the Data For a given dataset, we could fit a simple model to the data (e.g., linear regression) and likely have a decent chance of representing the overall trend. We could alternatively apply a very complex model to the data (e.g. a high-degree polynomial) and likely “overfit” the data – rather than representing the trend, we’ll fit the noise. If we apply the polynomial model to new data, we can expect it to make poor predictions given it’s not really modeling the general trend. The example above illustrates the difference between modelling the trend (the red straight line) and overfitting the data (the blue line). The red line has a better chance of predicting values outside of the dataset presented. Due to the powerful...

Bielefeld will lead the company’s business development efforts and be based out of Houston, Texas.
