Re: Corporate privacy?
I wonder if Oracle is working on its own kind of "differential privacy" algorithms, like Apple claims it's doing.

A quick patent search doesn't reveal much about Oracle's inventiveness with respect to Differential Privacy, but... TIL that Microsoft actually has a bunch of related patents on the subject.

Re: Corporate privacy?
Definitely worth looking into how Oracle is securing all this data.

Corporate privacy?
Hmm. I have to wonder how all this data gets mined and analyzed by "AI" without someone being concerned about the corporate privacy aspects? If Oracle's AI can determine that your sales guys are all putting in their reports at the same time or from a certain location, does Oracle's AI have anything to prevent someone from data mining that information for insider trading possibilities? 

If it *isn't* that sophisticated, then you also have to wonder "how is this really AI?" if it can't do more than simple keyword searches or time-based behaviors? 

If it *can* really flag expensive lunch receipts as suspicious.. then it might also be able to flag other activities, too. (eg. embezzlement, fraud, etc..)
