This section discusses how to get started with Oracle Machine Learning User Interface, and use Apache Zeppelin-based machine learning notebooks along with the Notebooks EA (Early Adopter), where you can perform data exploration and data visualization, data preparation and machine learning.
2.1 Get Started with Oracle Machine Learning User Interface
Here is how you can get started with Oracle Machine Learning User Interface (UI).
- Request access to Oracle Machine Learning UI. Contact your Service Administrator to create your OML user credentials and provide access to your Oracle Machine Learning UI account.
- Access the Oracle Machine Learning UI account by using your credentials. In case you forget your password, then request the Administrator to reset it.
Note:Once you receive your new password, you must change it immediately. Refer to the Oracle Machine Learning password policy for more information.
- Once you log in for the first time, a workspace and project will be created for you. You can start creating your notebook. You can also create your additional projects in the default workspace or create new workspace with corresponding projects.
Note:If you are using Oracle Cloud Free Tier, you have to provision an Oracle Autonomous Database. For more information, see Provision Autonomous Database
2.2 Access Oracle Machine Learning User Interface
You can access Oracle Machine Learning User Interface from Autonomous Database.
To access Oracle Machine Learning User Interface (UI) from the Autonomous Database:
- Select your Autonomous Database instance and on the Autonomous Database details page click Database Actions.
- On the Database Actions page, go to the Development section and click Oracle Machine Learning. The Oracle Machine Learning sign in page opens.
- On the Oracle Machine Learning sign in page, enter your username and password.
- Click Sign In.
This opens the Oracle Machine Learning user application.
2.2.1 About Oracle Machine Learning Password Policy
All Oracle Machine Learning users must follow the password policy to create a strong and secure password.
The password must be between 12 and 30 characters long. It must include at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, and one numeric character.
The password cannot contain the username.
The password cannot be one of the last 4 passwords used for the same username.
The password cannot contain the double quote (") character.
The password must not be the same password that is set less than 24 hours ago.
2.3 About Oracle Machine Learning Notebooks
Oracle Machine Learning Notebooks is a collaborative web-based interface that supports notebook creation, scheduled run, and versioning. You can document work using Markdown and run SQL, R, and Python code for data exploration, visualization, and preparation, and machine learning model building, evaluation, and deployment. Oracle Machine Learning Notebooks also provide the Conda interpreter to create a custom conda environment that includes user-specified third-party Python and R libraries.
Allows collaboration among data scientists, business and data analysts, application and dashboard developers, Database Administrators, and IT professionals
Leverages the scalability and performance of Oracle Autonomous Database Platform
Supports scheduling notebooks as jobs for one-off and recurring running of notebooks
Enables versioning of notebooks
Supports interpreters for SQL, PL/SQL, Python, R, Markdown, and Conda
