SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle's Autonomous Database Cloud, which runs without human intervention, was a highlight of this week's OpenWorld conference.

Another highlight: Larry Ellison slinging insults at the competition, and the competition returning fire.

Despite all the talk about automation, there were plenty of people on hand for Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL)'s annual convocation of the faithful.

Also on hand: a futuristic hotel and car. And dogs. And me and my camera.

Here's some of what I saw, and links to our OpenWorld coverage.

 

The conference took over all three buildings of San Francisco's Moscone Center. Oracle also took over the street between the two main Moscone buildings, where you can see attendees relaxing and catching up on work.

The Ha:mo car: Cute, compact, environmentally friendly. What else do you need?
Super! What a cuttie! When I saw the first picture I thought ”I see this same size of compact car all the time all over Europe.” They are environmentally friendly, and if you don’t have a family you don’t really need a large car just to be your nightmare when you are trying to find some convenient parking space. Then I moved on to the next picture, and, wow! :D THAT is compact! It’s brilliant. If you are just one person only need enough room for yourself and your bag. Smart cities are aiming at electric, semi-autonomous, compact cars as a way of introducing the soon-to-be-seen everywhere fully autonomous cars. Great pictures. Lots to talk about them all.

Hyatt design and pod elevators.
Hyatts usually have a great display of good architecture and design. That central sculpture reminded me of a few 3D printed design works I have seen recently; examples of how robotics and automation can be used in design. I imagine the sculpture at your Hyatt was certainly not 3D printed, though. :) I love the pod elevators. They are a mix of nice, futuristic (for the time the hotel was built) design, with some smart use of space, and something that gives guests an entertaining view rather than the pretty boring traditional elevator. I loved those two pictures.
