Hurd Says Oracle's AI Strategy Is Business-Focused

6 July 2017

Oracle CEO Mark Hurd noted the extent to which the company is infusing its cloud applications with artificial intelligence capabilities during an interview with CNBC after Oracle announced record fourth-quarter earnings.

Hurd explained that the company’s approach isn’t to build discrete AI applications, but rather to embed AI capabilities into Oracle Cloud application, platform, and infrastructure services its customers use to run their businesses. "Historically in our industry, we used to extract data from an application, send it somewhere, let people do magic with it...and then send it back," he told CNBC.

Hurd said the best approach with AI, however, "is really getting it integrated and embedded into the services themselves."

"And that's what we're delivering as we speak," he said.

Oracle will build AI-infused applications that customers can use immediately in a specific business context, without any extra development work on their part. “At Oracle we are embedding machine learning and artificial intelligence into the whole stack, augmenting AI with your own expertise,” says Mahipal Lunia, senior principal product manager Oracle. “This way, business leaders can focus on managing their business outcomes, their bottom lines, and have new technology adapting to them, rather than managing new technology.”
