Salutation: This paper presented the U-Net convolutional network technique, which was the foundation for my project’s major accomplishments this year, even though it was published in 2015 and is in a separate field (yay for applying techniques developed in the biomedical field to geology!). The U-Net convolutional network approach has proven extremely useful for training algorithms to detect a number of different geological features (e.g., geobodies, faults, horizons) from imagery (e.g., seismic).
What was awesome? It was helpful! It’s a scientific frontier! It’s a key technological development!
