Title: Leveraging Generative AI With Oracle AI Vector Search

AI Vector Search in Oracle 23ai is a new, transformative way to intelligently search through your unstructured business data efficiently, and accurately, by using AI techniques to match on the semantics, or meaning, of the underlying data. With the inclusion of a new VECTOR datatype, new approximate search indexes, and new SQL operators and extensions, enterprise companies can quickly and easily leverage AI Vector Search to build modern, generative-ai applications with just a few lines of SQL! And with this simplicity comes power, as AI Vector Search is fully integrated with Oracle’s enterprise-grade functionality, such as transactions, RAC, and Exadata. This talk will dive into the mechanics of AI Vector Search, ensuring a solid understanding of its implementation and benefits.
