Oracle OpenWorld 2018 is just around the corner. Kicking off on Monday, October 22, we will be having a host of sessions ranging from Product Updates and Roadmaps to to Customer Case Studies and Business Use Cases. To help you get the most out of your time at OpenWorld 2018, here is my personal guide to the top five sessions that you should plan to attend for Artificial Intelligence.

1. Oracle Cloud Platform Strategy and Roadmap [PKN5769]

In this session learn about the strategy and vision for Oracle’s comprehensive and autonomous PaaS solutions. See demonstrations of some of the new and autonomous capabilities built into Oracle Cloud Platform including a trust fabric and data science platform. Hear how Oracle’s application development, integration, systems management, and security solutions leverage artificial intelligence to drive cost savings and operational efficiency for hybrid and multicloud ecosystems.

SpeakerVikas Anand, VP, Product Management, Oracle

Monday, Oct 22, 12:30 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. | Moscone West - Room 2002


3. Enterprise IT Strategies: Supporting and Scaling AI Development [BUS4633]

This session is directed at the CIO and the IT professional who is being asked to architect a machine learning platform. As demands for machine learning use cases have grown across nearly every organization, it has become increasingly challenging for IT leaders to support these use cases in an efficient and scalable manner. Tasks such as provisioning resources, building environments, and managing deployments are taking up too much support hours and preventing organizations from developing scalable workflows for building and deploying AI solutions. In this session learn how the Oracle’s data science platform can make data science workflows more self-service, and help IT teams better support growing data science teams and use cases.

Speaker: Colin Schmidt, Sr. Director Software Engineering, AL & ML Platform, Oracle

Monday, Oct 22, 3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. | Moscone West - Room 3022


4. Beyond the screen: from ChatBots to Your Own Digital Assistant [PRM4587]

In the past two years, AI technologies have transformed the way we interact with systems and devices across channels. Chatbots have become widely adopted, and Oracle has started to evolve them into digital assistants that can complete user tasks. A digital assistant is able to leverage AI to make recommendations, possess many skills, initiate conversations, and use cognitive services to provide an ambient human experience. In this session see how Oracle Autonomous Digital Assistant Cloud can transform enterprises with next-generation conversational AI technologies.

Speakers: Suhas Uliyar, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle AI Bots and Mobile, Oracle, Sanga Viswanathan, VP Engineering, AI Bots & Mobile, Oracle

Monday, Oct 22, 3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. | Moscone West - Room 3020


5. Develop and Deploy Your First AI-Powered Chatbot as Digital Assistant [HOL6300]

Chatbots are one of the first widespread uses of artificial intelligence and natural language processing. They enable end users to interact with data or a service in the most natural way possible: through natural languages and a conversational UI. In this hands-on lab explore this new technology that is set to transform the way we interact with enterprise services. Develop and train a chatbot by defining intents, utterances, and entities, and then design the conversation flow, connect the chatbot to a back-end APIs, and expose the chatbot in Facebook Messenger. Attendees must have a Facebook account to participate.

Speakers: Bruno Henriques, Product Management, Oracle AI Bots and Mobile Platform, Oracle, Stephen Mcritchie, Consulting Member of Technical Staff, Bots AI and Mobile, Oracle, Sweta Patel, Oracle America, Inc.

Tuesday, Oct 23, 2:15 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. | Marriott Marquis (Yerba Buena Level) - Salon 10/11
