In this Cloud Wars Minute, Bob Evans discusses Oracle’s artificial intelligence (AI) strategy.
00:49 — Oracle CTO Larry Ellison and CEO Safra Catz have recently laid out a new AI strategy for the company that is an “across-the-board, end-to-end approach.”
01:15 — AI and machine learning (ML) are deeply embedded across all of Oracle’s applications to allow companies to close their books in days, not weeks, and service more relevant sales leads. Automation is another key part of this process — freeing workers to do “higher value work.”
01:51 — Ellison noted that in the Oracle Autonomous Database, AI and ML are the core differentiators.
02:52 — Finally, AI and ML will play a huge role in Oracle’s mission to automate the entire healthcare industry. Oracle has been creating disease-specific AI models that give doctors the best chance of optimizing treatment for patients.
03:47 — AI is becoming central to discussions that Cloud Wars Top 10 companies are having, explains Bob. Rather than simply reporting on who is using what, Bob says he will focus on the extent to which these companies are using it and customer-centered outcomes.
