Event Details

ASEG Victoria is pleased to announce the first of our winter series of in-person branch events with another superb technical meeting night.  You are cordially invited to join us for a talk by Mr. Mark Grujic (Director, Solve Geosolutions) on Wednesday June 16th from 6pm at The Kelvin Club.  Admission to this event is free for members so please ensure you have renewed your membership for 2021 before registering.

Advances in the geoscientific application of computer vision


One of the most common datasets available to exploration geoscientists is drill core imagery. Unfortunately, the huge range in quality and general state of core photography can be an impediment to many data-driven image analysis processes. In this talk, methods of dealing with some of the shortcomings of core photo data will be introduced.  Some such methods include the application of Self-Supervised-Learning to obtain models that are agnostic to lighting conditions, blur, resolution and other unwanted artefacts, as well as digital inpainting of geological information in photos that have been masked by core-markup or other obfuscations.  The validity of these processes to gain new insights from geophysical datasets including potential field geophysics data will be discussed.


Bio: Mark graduated from Monash university with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in geophysics. He spent 8 years with Rio Tinto Exploration in Perth and Santiago, initially working on geophysical hardware and processing algorithms, then supporting global exploration programs.  Since 2018, he has worked Solve Geosolutions, Australia’s first dedicated geo-data-science consulting group. In 2019, Solve launched Datarock, a mining and exploration focused computer-vision company, where Mark provides technical insight and product development support.


Note: Light refreshments will be served during the evening.
