Rob Knight is a pioneer in studying human microbes, the community of tiny single-cell organisms living inside our bodies that have a huge — and largely unexplored — role in our health. “The three pounds of microbes that you carry around with you might be more important than every single gene you carry around in your genome,” he says. Find out why.
“Every other major industry in the world has embraced technology and increased productivity because of it,” says Kelly Luttrell, cofounder and senior vice president of business development at ConXtech, a construction technology company based in Pleasanton, California. “In the construction industry, productivity has trended downward since 1964. Why? Partly because project stakeholders are afraid of the ripple effect that technology adoption might have on long-established scopes and roles. Change, even if for the better, can be perceived as risky.”
Upstream Technology Designed by Fracture ID to Boost EURs
Instead of drilling a well, taking traditional core samples from the formation, shipping them to a lab for analysis, and waiting while results lag the drilling process by days or weeks, there is a new technology for drillers that delivers reservoir intelligence to help them pinpoint optimal frac stage locations quickly.
