In recent years, the Oil and Gas sector made significant investments in its data analytics and Artificial Intelligence initiatives. However, recent studies show that these initiatives are stalling and have a low return on investment due to misalignment between business needs and the Artificial Intelligence solutions developed, data availability, access, and quality, slow adoption of resolutions by business segments, failure to scale and productionize, and decision makers’ inability to fully understand the value Artificial intelligence can add to their portfolios. This session highlights the success of BHP’s Artificial Intelligence initiatives within E and P and lessons learned from their journey.

The Oil & Gas industry presents unique challenges for developing and deploying valuable models. Heterogenous infrastructure at the edge, complex enterprise architectures, and organizational complexity mean it’s hard to drive a seamless, low-friction machine learning process. Learn how Domino’ end-to-end workflows (powered by Dell hardware) make Enterprise MLOps a reality.
