- Chatbots – An Introduction to Conversational Design
What is Conversational Design? /ˌkänvərˈsāSH(ə)nal/ /dəˈzīn/ The craft of imparting in a machine those human-like capabilities that enable the machine to interact with humans conversationally, on their terms – not on the machine’s. What Does This Mean? This means understanding written and spoken natural language, adjusting the interaction based on tone/syntax and visual cues, and abstracting/simplifying complex processes. Why is This Important? So that the user does not lose confidence in the interaction if the chatbot sounds dumb and doesn’t parse the info. And the conversational designers understand how users talk to the chatbot and build conversational interactions that respond in kind. Don McInnes from Oracle is going to share the conversational design strategies, tactics, and examples. He will touch on the NLP capabilities that need to be considered for every chatbot when formulating the design principles. He will talk about all the necessary ‘plumbing’ required like data, integration and other backend systems that need to come together. And of course, he will talk about what conversational designers do and what their DNA is to make ‘intelligent chatbots.’ About Don McInnes: https://www.linkedin.com/in/don-mcinnes/
- Hands on Lab - Test Drive an Autonomous Data Warehouse Powered by AI/ML
Oracle Building 4, SCA 23, Room # 1740
An autonomous database is a cloud database that uses machine learning to eliminate the human labor associated with database tuning, security, backups, updates, and other routine management tasks traditionally performed by database administrators (DBAs). Autonomous Data Warehouse is built around the market leading database and comes with fully automated data warehouse specific features that deliver outstanding query performance. This lab walks you through the steps to get started using the Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW). You will learn: 1) Learn how to deploy a data warehouse in a matter of minutes. Run workloads with only a few clicks without any manual tuning. 2) Scale storage and compute resources independently with database services running and with no downtime. 3) Run faster analytics on diverse data sets and have power for things like faster visual analytics and predictive pattern management. This hands-on workshop is for all machine learning experts, data scientists, DBAs, and developers who want to learn how a self-driving, self-repairing, and a self-securing data warehouse works on highly performant infrastructure.

- Workshop: Build Your First AI-Powered Intelligent Chatbot as Digital Assistant
Oracle Building 4, SCA 23, Room # 1740
Chatbots are one of the first widespread uses of Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing. They enable end users to interact with data or a service in the most natural way possible: through natural languages and a conversational UI. In this hands-on lab, you will get your hands dirty with this new technology that is set to transform the way we interact with enterprise services. You will develop and train the chatbot by defining intents, utterances, and entities. You will then design the conversation flow, connect the chatbot to a back-end APIs, and expose the chatbot in Facebook Messenger. The session also covers ways to surface the chatbot to other messaging applications such as WeChat and Line, voice assistants such as Alexa and Siri, and custom clients that can run inside a mobile app or web app. Attendees must have a Facebook account to participate. Students will learn about conversational design, asynchronous messaging, and conversational analytics. Who this workshop is for: Tech enthusiasts and developers are encouraged to join--no development experience required. What you will learn: Introduction to different conversational interfaces Introduction to building a typical chatbot and best practices Agenda: Welcome and Intro to Chatbots Build your First Chatbot Questions, Closing, and Networking What to bring: Your laptop and charger. Why you should learn to create chatbots: Chatbots are unlike any other communication method or marketing channel because brands now have a direct, one-to-one line to customers. Conversational data is unprecedented because we can understand what users want because they tell us exactly what they think using their own words, images, or emojis. The bot ecosystem opens up new job opportunities with the need for developers, conversational experience designers, and more!

- Big Data Science and Modern Revolutionary Storage
This event is sponsored by pavilion data systems (http://www.paviliondata.com/) 1 P.M. - 1:30 P.M. Networking 1:30 P.M. - 1:45 P.M. Introduction 1:45 P.M. - 2:45 P.M. Session 1 and session 2 Topic: Impact of Modern Revolutionary Storage on Data and Analytics by Pavilion Data Systems Abstract: While the demands for processing an increasing amount of data increases, little attention is paid to how new technology is making it possible to re-architect big data applications and simplify the procurement and operation of the supporting hardware required. With the advent of NVMe and NVMe-Over-Fabric, large-scale infrastructure used to host big data applications can be re-thought in fundamental ways since the compute resources can now be separated from storage. Savings in power, cooling, hardware costs, and operational costs can be realized when deploying Pavilion with HADOOP/HDFS, Spark, Cassandra, MongoDB, Clustered MYSQL, and other parallel high-scale big data applications like Machine Learning, AI, Deep Learning and High Performance Computing. Speaker: Sanjay Sabnis, Director Of Technology , Data and Applications Speaker Bio: Sanjay is passionate about data-intensive technologies and he has worked as a solutions architect on many big data projects. He has experience using applications in Pavilion’s focus area and has performed large data infrastructure design and setup at companies like Datastax, BestBuy, Apple, Verizon, Arrayent for IoT/Retail/Telco and for financial use cases at Visa. He has seen firsthand the challenges involved in the infrastructure procurement and deployment in data centers for big data projects, where performance is critical but often the infrastructure used to run applications is a second thought. Implemented large scale data analytics platforms in enterprises, a technology evangelist and adviser. AND Speaker: Jeff Sosa , Head of Products Speaker Bio: Jeff is in charge of Product Marketing and Management at Pavilion Data Systems, and brings over a decade of enterprise storage product experience to Pavilion. Jeff comes from Western Digital, where he ran the HGST PCIe/NVMe SSD business. In this role, along with his prior roles at Virident (Western Digital) and Fusion-io, Jeff focused on low latency storage products that powered some of the largest scale-out database deployments in the world. Jeff also held Senior Product Management and Marketing roles at DataDomain (EMC), PathScale (QLogic), NetApp, and Brocade.
