the AI in the name AI-GEOSTATS does not stand for Artificial Intelligence but
for Arc/INFO (a popular GIS). Although the list is not restricted since a long
time to this GIS only, the name was kept for historical reasons.
Anyway, machine learning algorithms, fuzzy logic etc. are of course welcome on
the list as long their use are discussed in the frame of spatial data
Good luck for your PhD.
PS: a useful reference is probably the following book
Soft Computing for Reservoir Characterization and Modeling
(Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
Editors: Patrick Wong, F. Aminzadeh and M. Nikravesh
Publisher: Physica Verlag (January 2002)
You could also have a look at Mikhail Kanevski's publications (many reprints
