5 Ways Crude Oil Marketers Can Use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

We all likely remember when supply chain visibility changed the game for commodity management. Suddenly, global suppliers had insights into the real-time locations and quantities of their inventory. This type of visibility gave crude oil marketers and traders actionable insights, improved ability to respond to the unexpected, and a leg up on their competition.

Early adopters of game-changing technological trends like supply chain visibility often see unprecedented growth in their business. The key is identifying new technology with the potential to usher in a new era of commodity management.


So what’s next in commodity management? Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are two very strong candidates, particularly for crude oil marketers and traders.

For commodity organizations willing to innovate, these game-changing technologies offer marketers and traders the chance to stand ahead of the competition.

The Future of Artificial and Machine Learning in Commodity Management

Financial firms are well-known to be the bellwether for the energy and commodity markets, and many already deploy AI and ML to automate critical business functions like fraud detection. However, AI and ML will soon be deployed in more complex fintech activities.

Once financial firms embrace this technology in more complex activities and prove their effectiveness, the commodities and energy industries are likely to follow.

The Time to Adopt Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is Now

In a recent article in Oilman, ION FEA’s Josh Gray recommends laying the groundwork for AI and ML today:

“Commodity organizations are just now beginning to explore the possibilities artificial intelligence and machine learning offer their businesses. Alone, this can be a daunting task, but the value of AI and ML compounds over time, driving tremendous growth for organizations with each instance. That’s why industry visionaries are turning to the leaders in advanced commodity analytics to lay a technological foundation that embraces ML today to support more significant AI initiatives in the future. Those with the headstart will have the competitive advantage over the mainstream laggards.”
