IPEC brings together professionals involved in developing and implementing technology to address and resolve E&P environmental problems. This year's conference will be held Monday - Wednesday, October 30-November 1, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas
WikiNet will be showcasing WatRem, the expert assistant remediation application. Marc Paquet will also be presenting Cognitive tool for the selection of a technology for the remediation of contaminated sites at the conference.
WikiNet is a company specialized in sustainable development solutions for the private and public sector. WikiNet collaborates with IBM/Watson, the world leader in cognitive computing, to create next generation applications that can learn from data and support decision-making of experts.
This will be the occasion to learn more about the inner workings of WikiNet's flagship product and give real life insights on how WatRem will be used to enhance the abilities of remediation experts around the world.
For more details or to set up a meeting, feel free to contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or come meet us at booth 13th in the exhibit hall!
Cognitive tool for the selection of a technology for the remediation of contaminated sites
The presence of contaminated sites represents an obstacle to the development of the society because of the consequences related to the loss of property values, the risks for human health and deterioration of the environment. The selection of a remediation technology encounters many challenges which are related to the presence of multiple contaminants, site specific geology and hydrogeology, presence of infrastructures, etc.
Environmental experts today are exposed to extremely rapid growth of the information across the planet (Big Data) making it impossible for an individual to assimilate knowledge available and quickly integrate it to his expertise. Gathering and processing all appropriate information to diagnose the problem and choose the most efficient technology with high level of confidence is key to an efficient remediation of contaminated sites. WatRem is a cognitive application designed to help experts in predicting the best remediation technologies for contaminated sites.The application incorporates the new cognitive processing technology created by IBM/Watson to process massive technical information (Big Data) from different structured and unstructured data sources such as scientific journals, governmental agencies, research centers, case studies, etc. WatRem has the ability to dynamically enrich its knowledge exponentially by integrating the information, as soon as it is available.
