Generative AI

What happens when GenAI makes everyone a power user?

byJimmy Fortuna

We’re all about to find out.

As a general rule, software designed for people with deep expertise in a technical field brings to the table both a great deal of power and a steep learning curve, and it doesn’t really matter what that technical field is. Are you an audio/video technician doing post-production work to make a movie? It helps a lot to know how to use Apple’s Final Cut Pro. Are you a reservoir engineer building a visual dashboard that quantifies the efficiency of DSU-level oil and gas recovery? Well, knowing your way around Enverus PRISM® goes a long way toward getting the job done well and quickly. Regardless of your profession, working effectively requires having expertise in your technical domain and working efficiently means applying that expertise with the software tools best suited to the workflow.

But what if tomorrow’s world isn’t like that anymore? What if the software of the future does the work of understanding what you need instead of you having learn how to use the software? Well, you won’t have to wonder for long, because that future is now.

Take a look at the short video below:

What you just saw is functioning software, and it won’t be long before it’s in the hands of customers!

That’s right – the Instant Analyst technology that we announced just two weeks ago is coming to PRISM. The Intelligence Vault already has Instant Analyst features enabled for a group of trial customers, helping them get faster answers to complex questions using our vast research library as its knowledge base. Very soon, PRISM will also be added to that knowledge base.

As the video above shows, what this means is that you will soon be able to simply ask PRISM questions like “How many active rigs are there in the Midland Basin?” and not only get the direct answer to the question, but also have further details revealed to you in a rich workbook of visualizations providing excellent context and further detail. In this example, you’ll access detailed information like which drilling contractor is running each rig, which operators they are drilling for, and much more. The “one click” workbook options are selected for you by the Instant Analyst from the workbook library carefully built by our Intelligence team and our principal consultants for the past decade. You can then customize the workbook view further if you like.

As useful as that simple example is for many users, the Instant Analyst can already handle much more complex questions and will get even more powerful over time. By combining the tremendous breadth of PRISM and its underlying data with the new capabilities of our AI, we can already see a path to enable every user to quickly become a power user!
