Abstracts:

 

Autonomous Data Management: The Way Forward
Data is the world’s most valuable resource. It’s the enduring asset at the center of every company’s digital strategy. But when firms pursue digital transformation, the data underpinning their applications, analytics, and algorithms stretches across public cloud, local cloud, and on-premises environments. In this new reality, how can companies accelerate data-driven innovation, while still maintaining airtight security against ever- evolving attacks? To find out, come join us for a session on Oracle’s vision for Autonomous Data Management and learn about organizations already putting it into practice.

 

De-mystifying Machine Learning and Deep Learning for the Non Data-Scientist

 

Machine learning and deep learning get a lot of attention, but behind the buzz and futuristic ideas, there’s some very powerful technology you can use today. This session will help any non-data scientist learn a little bit about how they work. You’ll learn about different kinds of machine learning techniques, an overview of neural networks and how they are trained, and the importance of the right data. This won’t make you a data scientist, but it will de-mystify these important technologies.
