Hu: The Human Element in Data Driven Digital Transformation

The rapidly changing shift to digital is fundamentally changing how the oil and gas workforce interacts and works. With this shift comes major challenges for leaders and their teams. How does an industry that’s reluctant to accept new technologies build culture and drive change management? How do we drive education and understanding of a true data driven digital strategy? How are we developing ‘data scientist’ competencies and what it means to be a ‘digital engineer’?  Panelists will discuss how they are bridging the vocabulary and cultural gap between data scientists and technical professionals, investing in retraining themselves and their teams, and how to attract and integrate new talent.

Keynote Panel: From Novelty to Necessity: How the Pandemic Changed the Oil & Gas Industry for Good

As with most things, the pandemic accelerated the push for digital adoption and those that are farther down the path of transformation will share their visions of the future. With artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digital twins moving from novelty to necessity, this operator fireside chat will look in the rearview mirror that was 2020 to discuss how the pandemic changed the industry for the good.
