The Computational Interpretation Group (CIG) in University of Science and Technology of China is a research group that collaborates with industry, government agencies, and academic institutions to advance research in exploration geophysics, monitoring, and artificial intelligence. Financially supported by global sponsors, students in the group engage in diverse research topics and have the freedom to choose those that align best with their interests and expertise.

Initially founded for seismic interpretation, CIG has expanded its scope to include computer-assisted processing and interpretation of datasets across diverse fields such as exploration geophysics, well-logging, seismology, planetary science, and oceanography.

For instance, the group developed softwares that efficiently and accurately interpret critical geologic features of faults, unconformities, horizons, geobodies, and facies in 3D seismic volumes. They further used these features, combined with well-log properties, domain knowledge, and human interactions, to build subsurface models.
