Faster Breakthroughs
As recently as a few years ago, scientists who wanted to undertake the most-demanding calculations in physics, engineering, and chemistry booked time on university or national supercomputers or assembled a machine themselves. Now cloud computing services such as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure are making high-performance arrays of CPUs, graphics processors, and network connections available to researchers, letting scientists in areas such as gravitational wave research, immunology, and drug development access machines faster than they could by using shared computers.

As we detail in this week’s lead story, less time between running experiments and seeing results lets scientists change parameters quickly on their way to medical breakthroughs.

How to Get More Business Value from Data Science
Data science “has to be a team sport,” says Ian Swanson, Oracle vice president of machine learning and artificial intelligence product development. Who should be on the team?

Without it, you can’t build and train powerful, production-oriented analytic models. Other necessary teammates.

Machine Learning Made More Accessible
To make machine learning more accessible to companies, Oracle is assembling a range of tools that different businesspeople—including managers, analysts, data scientists, developers, and IT staff—can put to work, says Oracle’s Chuck Hollis. For example, machine learning built into databases and applications can help IT managers predict the health of computer equipment and identify malicious code. Five other job types that could benefit.
