Upstream, Downstream and Midstream: AI for Oil & Gas A Sign of Vertical Solutions to Come?

It’s been challenging enough to get IoT implementations to move from proof of concept to large, distributed systems and solutions; will the advent of more sophisticated (and practical) AI layers accelerate the time to value, or slow it down?

Flutura believes the future is in the combination of IoT (and Industrial IoT) and AI that will lift both domains by delivering immediate value to enterprises – but only if the solutions meet specific needs and demands of vertical markets.

A software and networking company, with a focus on decision sciences, Flutura rolled out a “Cerebra” AI suite for oil and gas companies “aimed at optimizing drilling, fracking, production and supporting autonomous operations for customers.”

The fast-growing Houston, TX-based company has been serving the O&G industry for the last five years, also working with related specialty chemicals and OEM industries, but this is the first time the company has debuted so specific a solution as this.

Cerebra is Flutura's artificial intelligence platform offering advanced analytics and the ability to integrate artificial intelligence to provide advanced diagnostics and prognostics for asset- and process-heavy industries.

Greg Slater General Manager, Flutura said, “We’re proud to have already played a vital role in transforming the O&G industry’s operations by powering radically new business models. Our platform has historically delivered significant economic savings to leading oil and gas companies. What makes this solution more advanced is our new set of surgical oil and gas AI applications designed and engineered specifically for drilling operations, fracking, oil and gas production, supporting the advancement of more autonomous operations.”  

Cerebra’s connected asset and operations environment is holistic in that it addresses the upstream, mid-stream and downstream oil and gas sector.

“We’ve learned by working closely with our customers and partners that the future of AI is Vertical AI,” Slater  continued. “Our definition is simple: vertical AI is AI applied to specific business problems. For example, our fracking AI applications were purpose built to solve specific problems faced during fracking process.”
