Analytics+ Machine Learning

Abi Giles-Haigh & Philip Godfrey, Vertice

Earth Observation data is critical to allow us to monitor and assess the status of, and changes in, the natural and manmade environment. In this session we will begin exploring Earth Observation data using Oracle Analytics Cloud, so come along to see how you can use your skills to play your part.

Gayle Fink & Tim Vlamis, Vlamis Software Solutions

How many Bowie State University (BSU) bachelor’s degree graduates proceed to post-grad study within 7 years? How does this vary by field of study? Do social work undergrads proceed from a bachelor’s to a master’s degree? What analytics can BSU use to attract students to its undergraduate programs? These are just some of the questions that BSU wanted to answer. Vlamis Software Solutions combined BSU student data with National Student Clearinghouse data to analyze post-grad outcomes. The data were loaded into tables in Oracle’s Autonomous Data Warehouse using ADW Tools (seen as “Database Actions”) and analyzed using Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) as a multi-table dataset. Come see how BSU uses Oracle’s toolset to analyze postgrad outcomes.

Jeroen Kloosterman, Oracle

Thanks to the partnership between the Premier League (the top tier of England’s football) and Oracle we have the opportunity to experience what it is to be a football analyst and apply advanced analytics and machine learning to real match data. In this session, you will learn about the concept of “Expected Goals” (xG) in football. Expected goals (xG) is a predictive model used to assess every goal-scoring chance and the likelihood of scoring. The xG model computes for each chance, the probability to score based on factors such as distance, the position of defenders, type and speed of pass, type of shot, shot angles, and various other aspects. In this demonstration, you’ll see how we can use Oracle Machine Learning, Autonomous Database, and Analytics Cloud to: – Visualize data on a football pitch – Prepare data for machine learning – Train the xG model – Apply the model to recent matches to understand team and player performance.

Joel Acha, Qubix

One of the most overlooked components of the Oracle Analytics platform has been the Administration Tool used to manage the repository. We’ll take a look back at the “Admin” Tool also look at the structure of the semantic model and a deep dive into some features that should improve the process.

Spatial and Machine Learning

Jim Czuprynski, Zero Defect Computing, Inc.   

Think finding a close parking space is a challenge? Finding the closest charging station for your EV when you’re running short on battery power will be the next nightmare for drivers in Smart Cities. I’ll show how to use existing Oracle tools – including APEX’s Native Map region and built-in spatial analytic functions – to find the closest charge point while driving, as well as determine where it makes the most sense to place charge points to benefit utility customers.

Fourteen million flights are expected by 2035 in Europe alone. According to Eurocontrol (European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation), unless new solutions are implemented by increasingly capacity-constrained hubs, 1.5 million flights will not be accommodated by 2040, resulting in 160 million passengers stranded or delayed, and more time wasted in the air and on the ground, with extra ecological costs.

In partnership with the European Space Agency, OSCARS provides location-intelligent solutions through its Geo-Intelligent Platform (GIP). With integrated Machine Learning, GIP can successfully forecast spatiotemporal events and thus provide the various airport personas with on-time performance predictions, ensuring that arrival delays are positively transformed into on-time departures. Advanced deep learning architectures delivered on Oracle Cloud, that integrate Oracle Spatial, Stream Analytics, Middleware and Goldengate technologies, make this possible.

Ken Korsmit, Spatial Eye

The global energy transition from fossil fuels to zero-carbon is driving electric transmission and distribution companies to improve their understanding of the state of their energy networks – past, current, and future.

In the past, energy networks changed slowly over time, were not switched often and were feeding downstream only. This is all changing because of the energy transition.

Load flow calculation and network planning, once a yearly activity, is now changing into a monthly, weekly, or even daily activity of mission critical importance, eventually arriving at the digital twin. Calculating peak loads, or analyzing touch safety scenarios cannot happen without accurate data. As usage of network connectivity data increases, the current practice of point-to-point integrations and poor low voltage data quality is no longer acceptable. Therefore, a systematic approach has been developed to bring network connectivity to all areas of the enterprise.

Using examples from recent customer implementations in Australia and the Netherlands, we will discuss how Spatial Eye’s Warehouse application leverages Oracle Spatial to persist utility network connectivity data in an energy network model that reflects changes over time and can be consumed by power flow applications to calculate suitability of local power generation, network safety and outage sensitivity. Other applications include outage compensation, the computation of business KPIs (SAIDI, SAIFI and CAIDI) and network extension design.

David Lapp, Oracle

Spatial information is hugely valuable in the arena of artificial intelligence (AI), for example machine learning (ML) for home value predictions from county-level data, and deep learning for detecting changes in land cover from satellite imagery. Oracle Spatial is able to play a key role by supporting spatial data preparation, management, and analysis in concert with the growing ecosystem of spatial AI libraries. In this session, we will provide an overview of the role of spatial information in AI. We will also provide examples using spatial features of Oracle Autonomous Database and popular Python libraries to make predictions from a historical dataset of nationwide traffic accidents.

Data Lakehouse

Mike Matthews, Oracle

Data Lakehouse implementations can require a lot of software, and a lot of expertise. But did you know you can simplify your architecture, and improve your agility and data governance, by using the tools that are built-in to the Oracle Autonomous Database? The database provides tools for loading data, transforming and preparing data for analytics, finding data sets both in the database and in the wider data lake, and exploring and analyzing your data. Join this webinar to see what these tools can do and to learn about Oracle’s plans for them.

Dr. Holger Friedrich

There Is lots of talk about Data Lakehouses these days. What are the differences but also the similarities between Data Lake- and Warehouses? And how came the new term about to be in the first place? These questions are discussed and answered in this talk. Afterwards, the talk moves on to Oracle’s claim of offering the best product and service stack for implementing Data Lakehouses. An example OCI-based Lakehouse solution, combining different products like Object Storage, Autonomous Database, and Data Catalogue is discussed. Comparisons to competitors are made. This way, the talk will provide an introduction to Data Lakehouses as well as deeper discussion of Oracle’s offering, thus providing helpful insights regarding data strategy, architecture, modelling, and engineering.

Alexey Filanovskiy, Oracle

Lakehouses became a new reality for many customers who wants to maximize business output from their data capital. Oracle proudly offers wide range of products and database features to help customers to implement all-data strategy. At this session we will recap Autonomous Database capabilities for Lakehouses/Data Lakes, talk about upcoming features. Also, Oracle Product Managers will talk about best practices if building Lakehouses on Autonomous Database foundation
