The Future of AI & Machine Learning in Oracle Products - Rich Niemiec, Oracle ACE Director
This month's meeting will be via WebEx from 3pm-4pm Eastern time. Click HERE to join.
For this month's guest speaker, I am very pleased to have my good friend and Oracle ACE Director, Rich Niemiec, joining us live (while remaining socially distant) from his home in Chicago, Illinois with a very interesting and timely topic.
It seems that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are definitely front of mind for almost all of the forward thinkers of our time. Rich's presentation will cover Oracle's ability to leverage AI and ML from within Oracle Advanced Analytics or using a GUI from one of their recent acquisitions. Soon every Oracle product will start to leverage AI/ML! Knowing when/where to leverage these advancements for yourself may be the difference between success & failure in the future.
We'll look at the latest technology and algorithms that Oracle provides as part of the product, but also the CX products that are used to leverage AI/ML & Chatbots. We will explore how to leverage and integrate AI into your company's tech plan. We'll see the current state of AI & ML and how you can test and use this technology to create the future. We'll also look at the current Acceleration of the Cloud with the Big Data Revolution & Internet of Things (IOT) which will drive the Cloud even Faster. You'll see how to innovate better using leading edge Oracle products.
