About the event


The activities of the oil and gas industries such drilling, exploration and construction means that a large quantity of data is always being produced, however, is this stream of information being managed well enough to use in the best possible manner? By doing so, a business can be more efficient with their data, improving all-round results. SMi Group provides a CPD accredited masterclass which helps delegates learn how to implement semantic intelligence into your work domain and how to ensure that your valuable data is used most appropriately.

This event covers an extensive range of topics and provides a comprehensive survey and in-depth analysis of the future of successful information management – an essential tool for any business. Furthermore, the delegate will then learn how to utilise data and language semantics to the Oil and Gas sectors.  The masterclass is headed by an expert, Alan Flett, who has in-depth knowledge and experience of semantics from a wide range of angles, working both client and vendor-side. He has worked for oil and gas services company Baker Hughes Inc. where he conducted a large knowledge acquisition project to enable a knowledge-based system.

Gaining a deeper understanding into what semantics can do for businesses in the Oil and gas sectors is all the more important now that exploration, pipeline construction and drilling projects have become more ambitious and widespread e.g. planned construction of Nord Stream natural gas pipeline, linking gas from Russia to the European Union via the Baltic Sea; supplying both homes and businesses).
