A woman speaking to an Oracle.

One of the key highlights at Oracle Cloudworld 2023 is general availability of Select AI feature that allows anyone to query the Oracle Database using natural language. This is likely made possible with a template wrapping the database metadata with the prompt, and then calling either the OpenAI or Cohere APIs to generate the intended text.

Doug Gault had suggested a while ago that I could bring more awareness to the Oracle APEX Challenge Coin project if I had an Oracle APEX application that plots the location of each sponsored coin on a world map. I agree. However, aside from a lack of time, I had also wanted to find interesting ways for awardees to submit their claim of ownership. Over the last week, I had worked on making this dream of a "claims" map a reality with the use of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Vision AI service, more specifically, its custom model training feature.

Here's an early preview of the claims process in the Claim My Oracle APEX Challenge Coin application.

I'm finally finding more time, post-conference, to catch up on my writing. In this latest post, I'd like to talk about a presentation that I did at Kscope23, "Solving Everyday Problems with the Oracle Cloud". During the session, I had described and demonstrated how we can use the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) AI services and Oracle APEX to build compelling solutions, even for personal life challenges.

A cassette tape.

When I was first introduced to generative adversarial networks (GANs), I was impressed, but yet not impressed. The concept, performance, and outcomes of these advanced machine learning (ML) algorithms were truly jaw-dropping, but easily abused. And so, when everyone was excitedly chatting about ChatGPT, I was cynical and tried to tune out until I came across a comment by an old acquaintance, following a news article on concerns about ChatGPT and potential plagiarism in school.

It's like someone using a calculator in an arithmetic exam, ChatGPT is just another tool.

That statement got me rethinking my stance on the technology, and curious about its utility in my day-to-day job.

"Welcome" in multiple languages.

It's been too long since I last posted anything on my blog. Thanks to Tim Hall, I am writing again, after a long pause, to celebrate Joel Kallman Day 2022. My contribution today is about my deep appreciation for the team behind the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) AI Services. Below is a quick scoop on how I have used these services to improve on my OCI-powered e-flashcard for learning new words in a different language. I will be doing a quick demonstration (session LRN3673) of this work at the upcoming Oracle CloudWorld 2022.
