The purpose of this panel is to explore the various forms of technology that offer acceleration/advancement in the geothermal field.  The content will expand beyond the obvious “hard tech” (like new drill bits & techniques) to “soft-tech”: subsurface data, modeling like basin, reservoir, drilling, seismic, and fluids while also discussing the transference of people/experiences/techniques.  Our desire will be to touch on the obvious but move past it to some of the under-appreciated wildcards (IoT for monitoring, AI/ML, "big data) that could move the needle.
