About the talk


The SIRIUS SFI at the Department of Informatics lies at the intersection “new oil” and “old oil”, where informatics meets the oil industry.The centre attempts to set a research-based innovation agenda for its member companies, which include Statoil, Schlumberger, DNV GL, IBM and SAP.

This talk will explain what SIRIUS does and how we hope to address the challenges of industrial digitalization in and beyond the oil and gas industry.
