Parallel Thinking

The increasing demand for more sophisticated and faster software forces developers to apply new advanced theories coming from scientific fields such as artificial intelligence and mathematics, to combine them with parallel algorithms designed to work in the cloud or in multi-core environments, and to develop in turn new software tools for acquiring this knowledge.

Happy holidays with new how-to movies

Don’t miss these new how-to movies recently produced by our Knowledge Management Team: “Creating performance tables from Excel data” explains how to work with the super-flexible PetroVR well performance tables, while “Costs and Revenues” is part of a set of introductory videos aimed at demonstrating the basic PetroVR concepts. Using the LogLearning function will help you explore ways to model learning curves for any kind of PetroVR objects. Happy new year with PetroVR! Read More

The Course of the Methods

René Descartes (1596-1650) was maybe the first philosopher of the Modern era, possibly one of the founders of it, and surely one of the most influential minds of our entire history. In his Discourse on the Method (1637) he proposed the (use of the) doubt as a systematic method for reaching the truth. He made the most of doubt: doubt every given notion, admitting as valid only that knowledge that resists every attempt to refute it. Read More

Small Data and Parallel Processing

So, here we are in the age of Big Data. Huge amounts of records of the most diverse nature flood the Net. And most likely you have already noticed that there are cases where the information we obtain from this orgy of captures doesn’t suffice our modeling needs. Why? Read More

Even Probabilistic Splits

You have a probabilistic estimate of the OIP of a reservoir R. You also have a number n of wells w1, …, wn you will need to model in order to develop the reservoir. You don’t have estimates for the reserves of these wells so you would like to split the total recoverable fluid EUR of the reservoir evenly and probabilistically among the wells. How do you do that?

Smalltalks 2014 – A quick report

On the first days of November, we (Caesar’s Buenos Aires team and CEO) attended the Smalltalks 2014 conference. We have been attending these conferences since its first edition in 2007. Every year the conference takes place in a different university around Argentina, and this year it was at UTN in the large city of Cordoba. Read More

A sea of names

It is easy to feel one is getting lost in a sea of names: the number of technologies that serve the development process is so huge and it seems to change so rapidly that it is easy to get overwhelmed, even regarding topics closely related to the technology we use in our daily work. Read More

Hyperbolic to Exponential Transition

I don’t know if PetroVR users are decision makers. What I do know is that they are decision modelers. And what do decision modelers need? Expressiveness, of course! That’s why the vast majority of the questions our Help Desk analysts receive are, in one way or another, “how do I express ?” Read More
