Talk 10.3 - Metrics and Transfer Learning for Seismic Inversion
04:40 PM

We propose a new metric that can address some of the shortcomings of widely use metrics that were originally designed for traditional ML tasks not related to our field. The motivation is automatic quality improvement measurement, which is not quite well addressed by our vibrant community. Also, we will cover a use case for the proposed metric that is related to transfer learning in the context of seismic inversion.
