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.
