Take the computations to the data

The legendary computer scientist Jim Gray is said to have a conviction that when you have lots of data, you take the computations to the data rather than the data to the computations. Does this imply that (statistical) machine learning that relies on a large amount of data should be built into the database systems? Maybe a database system that directly manages uncertainty, such as Trio, is indeed a future trend.
