Keynote: Oracle Database 18c and the Autonomous Database

We are entering a new era in database with the introduction of the first ever Autonomous Database Cloud. Oracle Database is also switching to a new annual release model to support this new era, with Oracle Database 18c being the first release in this new model. But what does this mean to you and how will it change how you interact with the Oracle Database? This session provides a clear understanding of how our unique Autonomous Database Cloud works and illustrates how it will impact both DBAs and developers. It also provides a unique opportunity to get ahead of the curve and learn what’s new in Oracle Database 18c directly from the Oracle Database development team.

The Basics of Machine Learning

What is Machine Learning and why should I care? In this session we will talk about the basic concepts of Machine Learning: Features, Instances, Binary classification, Scoring and Ranking, and beyond. There are different models used in Machine Learning: logical, geometrical, grouping, probabilistic models, and model ensembles. We will talk about those models and learn a little bit more about Concept learning, Tree models, Rule models, Linear models, Distance-based models, and probabilistic models. After we have learn the basics of the models used in Machine Learning we will talk about Experiments in Machine Learning: what to measure, how to measure, and how to interpret the results. And in the end of the session we will take a look to the...

Building Microservices with Kotlin

Next Insurance was founded in the beginning of 2016 and first lines of our production code started accumulating in May 2016. As the first backend developer I have started writing in Java and out of curiosity was experimenting with Kotlin. Kotlin just saw its 1.0 release two months earlier. A year later our entire backend development team is writing all of the code in Kotlin. We have 6 microservices and several AWS lambda functions all written in Kotlin. Migration from 1.0.x to Kotlin 1.1 was smooth and our developers are happy. In this talk I will cover the language features and why I think it is awesome and how it fits perfectly to our architecture.

Let’s Talk About JVM Garbage Collection

Garbage collection is the most famous (infamous) JVM mechanism and it dates back to Java 1.0. Every Java developer knows about its existence yet most of the time we wish we can ignore its behaviour and assume it works perfectly. Unfortunately this is not the case and if you are ignoring it, GC may hit you really hard…. in production. Furthermore the information that you may find on the web can be a lot of times misleading. In this talk I will try to demystify some of the misconceptions around GC by understanding how different GC mechanisms work and how to make the right decisions in order to make them work for you.

Machine Learning and Graph Algorithms in Building a Very Large Scale Identity Graph

We at Oracle Data Cloud are building an identity graph that connects all the fragmented presence of a person, both online and on the real world, into a single concise view. This allows us to better model a person behavior, target her, and measure the effect of a campaign on her actions. To build this graph, we apply a tiered model that can handle the very large scale of the graph (composed of billions of points) and be able to utilize the different signals we collect for a person presence. This model uses a collection of Machine Learning and Graph Algorithms that enable us to solve for identity while controlling the scale and the accuracy of the results. In this...
