Want to be an 'AI billionaire'? Tune in to Computing's web seminar next week

Three successful Oracle cloud customers are to join Computing's web seminar entitled So you want to be an AI billionaire? Correct use of cloud for cutting edge innovation on Wednesday 1 March 2017.

Computing and Oracle will be joined by customers on location from Oracle's recent Modern Business Experience conference in London, with detailed case study conversations.

Dr. Becky Sage, CEO at Interactive Scientific, will be explaining how Oracle has assisted her organisation's work on "digital aesthetics and immersive experiences" for education and research.

Sage has managed the company as they developed digital science platform Nano Simbox, which seeks to change the face of science education and science research.

Sage has been recognised as a WISE (Women in Science, Technology and Engineering) finalist, a National Women in Innovation winner and a change-maker in education. She believes in connecting the full scientific ecosystem to the societal challenges that are underpinned by science research and developing a more diverse work force with the scientific skills, confidence and intuition to build a healthy, sustainable future.

We'll also be joined by Toan Nguyen who, after 15 years of IT at blue-chip companies, founded ERP and CRM specialist firm Shortways five years ago.
The company hopes to "bring great value to blue-chip companies on their business applications" in ERP, CRM and HCM and Nguyen describes it as an "innovative, just-in-time learning software providing step-by-step guidance and context-sensitive help, embedding videos, job aids and business procedures".

It can also apparently be set up in "under five minutes" on any software including SaaS, and can cut training costs by up 20 per cent. Tune in on 1 March 2017 to find out how Oracle contributed to this ambitious business plan.


Finally, Nihad Yolchuyev will be explaining his work at Aurora Energy Research, where he is a senior software developer.

The company delivers data-driven analytics on European and global energy markets through the methods of forecasts, reports, forums and consultancy.

Facing a challenge to push for "deeper focus on quality analysis", it's not difficult to see how a push into cloud and analytics technology could benefit Aurora as it develops…

Join us for So you want to be an AI billionaire? at 11.30am on Wednesday 1 March 2017, and hear these customers' stories for yourself.
