  • Patent number: 10496751
    Abstract: Provided are techniques for avoiding sentiment model overfitting in a machine language model. A current list of keywords in a current sentiment model can be updated to create a proposed list of keywords in a proposed sentiment model. Machine-generated sentiment results, based on the proposed sentiment model, are presented to identify model overfitting, without revising the current set of keywords. The proposed set of keywords can be edited, and when overfitting is not present, the current list of keywords is replaced by the proposed list of keywords.

  • Patent number: 10496776
    Abstract: A design of an integrated computational element (ICE) includes (1) specification of a substrate and multiple layers, their respective target thicknesses and refractive indices, refractive indices of adjacent layers being different from each other, and a notional ICE fabricated based on the ICE design being related to a characteristic of a sample, and (2) identification of one or more critical layers of the ICE layers, an ICE layer being identified as a critical layer if potential variations of its thickness or refractive index due to expected fabrication variations cause ICE performance degradation that exceeds a threshold degradation, otherwise the ICE layer being identified as a non-critical layer. At least one critical layer of the ICE is formed using two or more forming steps to form respective two or more sub-layers of the critical layer, and at least one non-critical layer of the ICE is formed using a single forming step.

  • Patent number: 10495778
    Abstract: A method of cross-tool optical fluid model validation includes selecting verified field data measured with a first sensor of an existing tool as validation fluids and selecting a second sensor for a new tool or on a different existing tool. The method may also include applying cross-tool optical data transformation to the validation fluids in a tool parameter space from the first sensor to the second sensor, and calculating the synthetic optical responses of the second sensor on the validation fluids through cross-space data transformation. The method may further include determining a new or adjusting an existing operational fluid model of the second sensor in a synthetic parameter space according to the candidate model performance evaluated on the validation fluids, and optimizing well testing and sampling operation based on real-time estimated formation fluid characteristics using the validated fluid models of the second sensor in an operating tool.
