Machine learning has been included for many years in Geolog software under the name of Facimage.  However, there have been many improvements in deep learning techniques in the past few years which have yet to be fully utilized in the realm of Petrophysics.  With the new Geolog 18 release, users can now process their well data using the Python language and take advantage of the tools that come with it, such as Scikit-Learn and Tensorflow.  This talk will cover what is currently available in Facimage and how to leverage Python to build custom machine learning tools in Geolog.
