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.
In case you missed it, Oracle recently announced the availability of a new feature for the Autonomous Database (ADB) that allows developers and database administrators to send messages using either emails, Slack, or Microsoft Teams (Teams). At Insum, we use teams for internal communications and collaboration, and thus, you can appreciate my excitement when I heard about this feature release. Here's an early guide to getting started with
DBMS_CLOUD_NOTIFICATION for those using Teams at their organisation.
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.
