About this book

Database developers and administrators will use this book to learn how to deploy machine learning models in Oracle Database and in Oracle’s Autonomous Database cloud offering. The book covers the technologies that make up the Oracle Machine Learning (OML) platform, including OML4SQL, OML Notebooks, OML4R, and OML4Py. The book focuses on Oracle Machine Learning as part of the Oracle Autonomous Database collaborative environment. Also covered are advanced topics such as delivery and automation pipelines.

Throughout the book you will find practical details and hand-on examples showing you how to implement machine learning and automate deployment of machine learning. Discussion around the examples helps you gain a conceptual understanding of machine learning. Important concepts discussed include the methods involved, the algorithms to choose from, and mechanisms for process and deployment. Seasoned database professionals looking to make the leap into machine learning as a growth path will find much to like in this book as it helps you step up and use your current knowledge of Oracle Database to transition into providing machine learning solutions.
