SPE Drilling Uncertainty Prediction Technical Section Competition Results: ML Techniques to Detect, Assess, and Grade Drill Bits from Bit Images Captured at the Drill Site

Quickly evaluating damage to drill bits at the end of a run can help optimize future drilling operations. Image capturing technology has developed to where bit photos with sufficient resolution for image processing can be easily captured at the rig site. Machine Learning (ML) has also improved significantly over the last decade.
