Each seismic survey in Oil & Gas exploration generates tons of seismic wave data, typically hundreds of Terabytes. Transforming the huge amount of data into a accurate earth subsurface model requires exascale level computing power. This presentation will analyze the computing requirements and trends in seismic data processing, evaluate the competence of the current generations ARM64 SoCs and the new features required.
