Five Minute Briefing - Oracle
February 22, 2017
Oracle has expanded the Oracle Cloud Platform's data integration offerings with the launch of Oracle Data Integrator Cloud. The new cloud service is aimed at speeding and simplifying cross-enterprise data integration to support real-time analytics.
Qubole, which provides big data-as-a-service and is a silver level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, is making its Qubole Data Service (QDS) available on the Oracle Cloud. With this offering, the Qubole Data Service is leveraging bare metal on Oracle Cloud to provide customers with fast access to analytics.
Stratoscale, which provides software-defined cloud infrastructure software, has acquired Cambridge, Mass.-based Tesora, a privately held database-as-a-service (DBaaS) provider.
THINK ABOUT IT
Imagine you are standing by a railway track near a lever that switches between two sets of tracks. A runaway rail trolley is heading toward the fork in the tracks, and five people are trapped on the currently activated line. You could switch the trolley to the alternative track, but there is a single person trapped there as well. Do you switch the trolley? The artificial intelligence community is increasingly wrestling with similar moral conundrums implicit in the ever-more pervasive algorithms that underlie much of our technological infrastructure.
