BP remains controversial to this day, but this isn't about oil spills or the company's questionable practices to cover them up. Nope, this is about BP and GE teaming up to connect the former's oil wells to the internet. The oil-and-gas giant has connected 650 of its wells to GE's Predix data gathering and analytics platform for the partnership's pilot project. See, each well has up to 30 sensors that measure its pressure and temperature, among other data. Now that the company is using GE's software, it can access those information in real time and even upload data to the Predix cloud for further analysis.
