Learn how researchers are driving world-changing results with cloud-powered discovery.
Every year tires, plastics, and synthetics litter California’s waterways and contribute to the 7 trillion pieces of microplastic trash in the San Francisco Bay that ultimately end up in the ocean threatening avian, marine, and human health. Traditional “boots on the ground” trash monitoring methods are labor-intensive, costly, and not scalable. Using drones and Oracle Cloud technologies, researchers with the San Francisco Estuary Institute and the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project developed a scalable, cost-effective trash monitoring method that delivers faster, more consistent results to help California better manage and reduce trash waste that passes through its waters into the open ocean.
When a drug or combination of drugs interacts in unwanted or unexpected ways with human cardiac protein ion channels, the results can be deadly. Screening pharmaceutical compounds for their potential effects on the heart is critical to drug safety and efficacy, but the screening process can be both costly and long. University of Davis researchers turned to Oracle Cloud technologies to run their molecular dynamics and machine learning models to better predict the cardiotoxicity likelihood of pharmaceutical compounds twice as fast as on-premises resources.
Accelerated research is vital when battling a novel, global pandemic. As most of the world went into lockdown from the fast-spreading novel SARS-CoV-2 virus, an international team led by University of Bristol researchers went to work. Using cryo-electron microscopy and Oracle’s high-performance cloud infrastructure the team unexpectedly discovered a potentially druggable pocket, the important role of an essential fatty acid, and the possibility of stopping COVID-19.
Hidden within cancer tumor tissue samples are “fingerprints” that may be the key to precise, individualized, more accurate diagnoses and treatment. Because traditional pathology methods cannot always see these unique, potentially life-saving clues, researchers at the Ellison Institute of USC are using machine learning and Oracle's high-performance cloud to drive an algorithm’s artificial "neurons" to more efficiently and accurately identify and categorize cancers.
Vaccine development speed and safety are essential to saving lives when battling the surprise attack of a quickly advancing global pandemic. Armed with their scientific experience and the power of Oracle Cloud, Flinders University researchers are pushing the boundaries of traditional vaccine candidate development to safely accelerate the process from fifteen years to fifteen weeks.
Vaccination is a powerful front-line defense to combat viral and pathogenic diseases. University of Bristol and Imophoron researchers are using Oracle's high-performance cloud infrastructure to develop a novel computational approach to create an accurate, high resolution digital model of their synthetic vaccine in a fraction of the time.
Litter, graffiti, illegal dumping, and vandalism pose big challenges to Los Angeles. The solution uses cameras on city vehicles and cell phone images from citizens to identify problem areas. Oracle Cloud technology processes the images, using deep learning to label the data (such as “area with graffiti”), and makes that data available to other applications.
Human-produced greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions, over the last 150 years have caused much Earth’s increased temperatures over the past 50 years. Accelerating carbon capture technology is essential in significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions to prevent climate change. Royal Holloway University of London researchers turned to Oracle’s high-performance cloud technologies to more accurately and rapidly predict suitable future carbon storage sites.
