Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs for this discussion series on how the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the energy sector can advance the discovery of new technologies, aid in the prediction of successful energy-related systems, and optimize operations.

Most people are now familiar with one type of Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI), ChatGPT, that produces writings from existing data on the internet. GenAI is a very topical area of AI. It uses neural networks to identify patterns and structures within existing data to generate new and original content. 

GenAI for energy operations is a vast opportunity for the energy sector. Collecting data from various types of energy operations– wind turbine fleets, power storm and outage management, and supply chains–while processing them with AI is beginning to make significant operational improvements. AI drives performance and reduces developmental technical risks, emissions, and costs. 

This second session of the Artificial Intelligence for Energy series will cover the oil and gas sector. AI analysis of 3D seismic data, recommendations for development planning, and monitoring and optimizing operations, is a vast area of potential applicability for AI.
