Siva has been with Oracle for over 17 years leading the spatial development activities at Oracle, both for on-premise systems as well as for cloud services. Prior to joining Oracle, Siva received his PhD degree from the Univ. Of Minnesota with a thesis on parallel algorithms for spatial databases. Under his leadership, Spatial technology is incorporated into different Oracle products including the database, middleware and applications. He is also a well-known researcher in the industry with over 50 patents and publications in the area of Spatial Databases.Abstract AI and ML in Spatial ApplicationsArtificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can be used in spatial applications for object and pattern detection (cars, ships, containers to assess retailer sales and crude oil storage, find and match street numbers, extract roads, count trees etc.); target tracking; activity monitoring (construction progress); environmental conditions classification; modeling (flooding, landslides, social patterns); and autonomous driving. In this presentation, we describe three use cases that can be solved with Oracles spatial technology along with AI and ML techniques. We describe some of the cloud offerings available from Oracle that can be used to build these applications on public cloud.
