In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is used to describe machines that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".
In Geoscience, problems that can be solved with the help of AI are numerous and are still being explored. Some examples of applications are:
- noise attenuation in seismic data
- seismic processing
- seismic inversion
- seismic interpretation (attributes and fault detection, characterization of subsurface structures)
