Energy industry experts + deep learning wizards + idea incubator = ???
This thread was posted after I wanted to connect with more people in the energy industry (where I work) to discuss how deep learning may pave the way for solutions to problems specific to energy. I know there are more people out there who are well-versed in problems specific to their domain (like me), but may be at the beginning of their fast.ai journey. I believe this is exactly what Jeremy is after with fast.ai – diversifying the AI workforce.
Most of us in the energy industry come from a world where the concept of open source and ‘sharing’ really isn’t a thing. The more proprietary data and knowledge you own, the better positioned you are to profit. It’s a status quo that is severely outdated! Let’s try and break some of those barriers down.
So, if you work in Energy Industry in one or more of the following disciplines – you’re in good hands.
- Gas (+ Biogas)
I encourage you to share / discuss / debate / collaborate on any neat stuff being done with deep learning in energy, even if it’s just an idea you have - or even if it’s something you saw or tried that didn’t work! I’m hoping we can focus on real-world problems and leave the research-y stuff on the sidelines (not that it’s not great as well).
I will do my best to keep a running list of the things that people have posted.
