It is fascinating and a bit gut wrenching since they are drilling into the ocean and when something goes wrong it will effect us more than we will ever know.

I thought maybe it was a term used among analytical sorts. Maybe not!

@Beth   Thanks for the definition.   Not too often a word causes a complete blank, but that one did.  Even though I have seen the word convolve, just never thought to phrase it's opposite as such.

Well, since my source used it and I was directly quoting him, I did look it up to make sure I understood what he meant. I figure he meant to become less convoluted, which I think is a word we're all much more familiar with. In turns out "convolve" means to "entwine," in math the meaning being to "combine (one function or series) with another by forming their convolution." So to de-convolve would be the opposite.

I have to agree Louis -- that's a very strange word.

"What PAM is teaching us is that you can use statistics and advanced analytical solutions to actually de-convolve the problem...."



De-convolve ?   There's a new one.  I have no idea what this term is, so shocking to the senses - I don't even want to look it up !  ; )

We didn't really get into discussions regarding the benefits around safety, but you're absolutely right.

I totally agree with that. My concern is only this: will people listen to the data and resist the urge to take shortcuts that could result in catastrophic incidents like the ones we have all heard about in recent years? 

The data is only as good as the people who follow it.

If more and better data can drive safety in an industry that had seen a spike in fatal accidents recently, it will be especially beneficial.
