Uncharted Territory : Application Express

Are you new to APEX and hesitant to create a chart or visualization? Are you unsure how to collect the data needed to populate a chart?

Michael enjoys working with new developers to teach them the ins and outs of APEX—how to start with relational concepts and how to approach page development and reusable techniques.

Machine Learning 101 : Emerging Technology

This presentation will focus on what specific algorithms inside Oracle can be applied to business problems. Robots may be the first to truly learn machine learning (ML) and expand into artificial intelligence (AI). Python is one of the keys to machine learning as we program the invention of the mind to further replace humans’ most basic tasks. This session will focus on ML 101 and building the future ahead. Some business issues are seasonal, some relate to customers with certain attributes, and some relate to customers we don’t know exist, but all can be solved by using the correct algorithm to quickly prescribe a better corporate future.
