In my previous post, you read about how I performed fine-tuning and deployed a large language model (LLM) on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Data Science service. Here, I was hoping to do the same with the Stable Diffusion XL, a Latent Diffusion Model (LDM), but unfortunately, the platform currently does not support a Hugging Face pipeline using this model. I found an alternative, and you will read about it later in this article.

To demonstrate its utility, I create a simple Oracle APEX application that reads NFC tags using the experimental Web NFC API, and then displays an image generated by the deployed machine learning (ML) model.

LLMs for analyzing customer reviews.

In my previous post, I wrote about how a scikit-learn machine learning (ML) could be trained and deployed on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Data Science service. The model is deployed on the service's managed infrastructure, allowing developers to simply call a HTTP endpoint to perform ML model inference on the submitted data. In my latest adventure, I built an Oracle APEX application that takes product reviews and then automatically ranks the review using a fine-tuned large language model (LLM) available through Hugging Face.

Woman in a crystal ball

This has been one of those weeks where I couldn't wait to wake up and get to work. Just last week, Luc Demanche threw me a challenge and asked that I help develop an Oracle APEX application that could be used to predict the winner of the Rugby World Cup 2023 (RWC2023). I couldn't resist the challenge!

"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.

Embedded ARM chip

In September 2020, Oracle first announced that it was working with Ampere Computing to provide ARM-based chips for its Compute instance offering on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. They have delivered!

ARM chips are found in many low-powered devices like smartphones, single-board computers, and IoT devices. So, if you are an Oracle Application Express (APEX) developer, you might be wondering, "What's in it for me?" Well, remember we talked about running a customer-managed Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) instance for an Oracle Autonomous Database?
