This article titled "Wie Unternehmen vom Vormarsch des maschinellen Lernens profitieren können" appeared in German last week in the "Digitaliserung" column of Wirtschaftwoche.

When a technology has its breakthrough, can often only be determined in hindsight. In the case of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), this is different. ML is that part of AI that describes rules and recognizes patterns from large amounts of data in order to predict future data. Both concepts are virtually omnipresent and at the top of most buzzword rankings.

Personally, I think – and this is clearly linked to the rise of AI and ML – that there has never been a better time than today to develop smart applications and use them.…

In our previous post on In-Memory Expressions (IM expressions) we described what an IM expression is and showed the potential for additional high-performance acceleration using the feature. We said that there are two types of IM expressions, user-defined IM virtual columns and automatically detected IM expressions which are stored as hidden virtual columns. This post will focus on automatically detected IM expressions and how they work.

In Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2) a new feature called expression tracking was added. You can read more about this feature in an Optimizer blog post available here. The bottom line is that the Optimizer tracks expressions and stores them in a repository called the Expression Statistics Store (ESS). Along with the expression and other information, the number of times the…

Once connected, the systems that power call centers generally don't do a good job of using and sharing available information. Therefore, you often start out anonymous and can't be recognized until you've gone through a scripted set of questions. If your…
