I agree that new ways of innovation and efficiency are required, and here in Canada IBM is leading the innovation agenda in this sector, working in collaboration with energy partners. Technology is enabling new ecosystems to form, and IBM’s Watson and AI capabilities are at the heart of the Watson for Natural Resources innovation consortia that we have formed that is enabling new ways to analyze and leverage the massive amounts of information being generated every day by oil and gas companies.
The objective is to enable intelligent operations that allow the industry to be more agile, able to operate in changing conditions, and advance transformation at high-speed and scale.
