Bluware and Microsoft have announced a new collaboration, using Azure to build InteractivAI, Bluware’s seismic data offering for the energy industry. Going forward, the companies will plan new ways to combine Microsoft’s OSDU Data Platform with Bluware’s seismic modeling capabilities. Instead of neural networks, Bluware is trying to achieve interactive deep learning that gives data scientists the ability to steer the network as it learns.

As part of the collaboration, Bluware is providing its offering through AppSource, delivering data in the cloud-based Volume Data Store, and working with Microsoft to support Blob Storage for petabytes of seismic data.

“The interactive deep learning approach is a data-specific approach that focuses on creating the best learning and training model for the geology the user is working with,” wrote Kadri Umay, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft. "Unlike traditional deep learning approaches, the idea is to start with a blank, untrained network and train it while labeling to identify any feature of interest."

Bluware is also planning for the company’s IT team to implement Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to accelerate and expand their Azure-based solution, Umay stated.
