Accelerating Cloud Innovation: Looking Back on Oracle OpenWorld 2018 with Mark Hurd

Oracle OpenWorld 2019 is a few weeks away. The world’s largest technology conference will return to Moscone Center in San Francisco on September 16th through the 19th, 2019 and will deliver hundreds of innovative keynotes and breakout sessions led by technology and business leaders from around the world.

Oracle CEO Mark Hurd has become one of the event’s most anticipated speakers with his bold predictions for the future of technology and business. In his 2018 keynote, Hurd placed a heavy focus on the shift to cloud applications and the innovations AI will bring.
He expressed his belief that AI is not an independent solution but rather a core feature that will be embedded in almost every technology. One of Hurd’s predictions was that 100% of cloud applications will include AI by 2025.

By 2025, all cloud apps will include AI. AI will be integrated in all of those applications. The same will be true of blockchain.” – Oracle CEO Mark Hurd
