Italian oil major Eni and IBM have launched the Cognitive Discovery research platform following a multiyear collaboration on the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

Eni said on Tuesday that the objective of the new platform was to support the company’s decision-making during the initial stages of an exploration phase, to significantly reduce the exploration risks linked to geological complexity.

According to the company, the research tool works like an augmented intelligence assistant providing a more realistic and precise representation of the geological model of the subsoil while processing large amounts of geological, physical and geochemical data.

These data sets are processed by Eni into knowledge graphs which use AI to contextualize and present relevant information to geoscientists, which will help them improve decision making and the identification and verification of possible alternative scenarios.

Eni added that the platform would enable the analysis of huge amounts of structured or unstructured data that can be numerical, logical, or a combination of the two.

Eni and IBM will continue to work with the Cognitive Discovery platform to extend its document analysis capabilities to new domains such as engineering, reservoirs, and other sources. The platform is running on an IBM HPC Power 9 cluster installed in the Eni Green Data Center located in Ferrera Erbognone, Italy.
