Event description

Description

You’re invited to attend UNTAPPED, a collaboration for the data science community working to create insights from Oil and Gas data.

Join us on Thursday April 12, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Oddfellows Building, located on the 4th floor of 100 6th Avenue SW. We will meet to discuss the framework for the Datathon event and establish data cell groups. Food will be provided! The agenda for April 12 has been set:


  • Welcome

  • What is this Datathon about?

  • Pizza dinner and networking

  • Keynote - the NEB will share how they are currently using data and visualizations to make better decisions

  • Example Data Use Cases

  • Small Group Formation and Breakout

  • Regroup Presentation

  • Next Steps and Wrap Up


As the vision for this initiative is to solve challenges and birth innovation by enabling decision making from data upgraded into information, we invite you to come prepared to share how this could happen in the Oil and Gas industry. Areas of inspiration could include corporate social license, health & safety, the environment (water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, reclamation and abandonment, etc.), the industry's aging infrastructure and new business models.

Then, we meet again in the fall for the Premier Datathon, a multi-day event where the data cell groups will apply various data science techniques against Oil and Gas data sets. Data cell groups will then present their findings to each other.

The group planning this event spans across industry and academia:

  • Marc Boulet – Cenovus Energy

  • Sheldon Wall – Deeper Data Insights

  • Alex Whalley - University of Calgary

  • Geoff Zakaib - Data For Good

  • Elena Dumitrascu - Innovate Calgary

  • Joelle Foster – University of Calgary – Hunter Hub

  • Tim Chan – Suncor Energy
