Self-driving databases are the future, says Feifei Li of Alibaba

  • “Feifei believes AI is “yet to make a big impact” and remains limited to heuristics like computer vision, speech, and voice recognition. But, he feels that one thing’s crystal clear: AI will in time play a big role in the way business is conducted.
  • At Alibaba, we have the Auto Scaler; you can automate and monitor workloads without having people to do tasks. It is on demand and elastic, which means businesses save on cost. It includes even NewSql.
  • We can use AI for common scenarios. For example, we can help ecommerce or traditional systems to manage their latency and scalability and use algorithms to ensure that databases are secure and running fine.”
