PPIM – Machine Learning and Data Science Adoption Slow but Interest Booming

Last week, we attended the Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management Conference and Exhibition (“PPIM”), the pipeline industry’s only forum devoted exclusively to maintenance, inspection, and integrity evaluation. We wanted to see the extent to which the industry was embracing machine learning to manage and protect its most valuable assets – pipelines. In this report we detail our findings, but before we dive in below is a brief summary of our last report.

In our report ESG Investment for the Petroleum and Gas Pipeline Industry, we detailed that:

Sophic Capital client OneSoft Solutions (OSS:TSXV, OSSIF:OTC) is an Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) […]

Fossil Fuels Aren’t Going Away – Not Your Typical ESG Investment

Dirty, dirty oil.  We are so past that. Renewables are all the rage – clean energy, renewable natural gas, wind and solar. Whether you are committed to or skeptical about renewable energies, you cannot deny that ESG companies are getting a lot of media headlines and bylines. For those new to ESG, it stands for “Environmental, Social and Governance”, and includes not only renewable energy companies but also firms changing their practices to affect positive environmental, social, and government changes.

Not convinced that ESG is a real trend? Major investment firms and corporations are embracing ESG: Microsoft (MSFT:NASDAQ) has said it […]

Give it Away – The Million You Never Made

Most consumers care about their personal data privacy but don’t know how to: a) take back their data, and b) monetize their data. Not only are governments stepping up regulations to protect consumers, but awareness around the value of personal data is starting to proliferate across the media. As consumers realize the value of their personal data, they may be inclined to protect it and find a way to monetize it.

Here is what happens when we use social media, applications and websites. In exchange for free access, we provide (often voluntarily) details about who we are, what we do, where […]

Data Privacy – The Canary in the Coal Mine

Data Privacy – The Canary in the Coal Mine
Some of our subscribers may not know that many birds are far more sensitive to poisonous airborne gases than humans.  For this reason, in the early years of the 20th century, British coal miners carried caged canaries into the mines to act as carbon monoxide detectors. Canaries that became ill or died in the mines indicated the presence of the odorless and colourless gas and that miners should evacuate.

We’re seeing the same happen with firms that collect and monetize your personal data. Although no birds are involved, we have already seen Oracle […]

Give it Away – The Million You Never Made (Part 2)

We’ve all seen online advertisements that match our interests. Many of us have pieced together that websites and apps collect our personal info, determine our interests, and somehow advertise to our interests whenever we’re online. What many people don’t know is that there are companies beyond Facebook and Google collecting our personal data and selling our digital profile to the highest bidders. You get paid nothing.

In Part 1 of Give it Away – The Million You Never Made, we detailed how governments have implemented or are about to enact legislation protecting personal data. In Part 2 of this report, we […]
