Microsoft to Partner With Halliburton

Microsoft and Halliburton announced Tuesday plans to enter into a strategic alliance to drive digital transformation across the oil and gas industry. Researchers and engineers from both companies will collaborate on applying deep learning to reservoir characterization, modeling and simulation, building domain-specific visualization for mixed reality, creating highly interactive applications and fueling the digitalization of E&P assets.

As a first step in the alliance, Halliburton said Tuesday it has made DecisionSpace 365 available on Azure, enabling real-time data streaming from IoT edge devices in oilfields and the ability to apply deep-learning models to optimize drilling and production to lower costs for customers.
