Wikidata article in CACM

Tweet I just noticed that Denny Vrandecic and Markus Krötzsch have an article on Wikidata in the latest CACM. Good work! Even better, it's available without subscription. Wikidata: a free collaborative knowledgebase , Denny Vrandecic and Markus Krötzsch, Communications of the ACM, v57, n10 (2014), pp 78-85. "This collaboratively edited knowledgebase provides a common source of data for Wikipedia, and everyone else. Unnoticed by most of its readers, Wikipedia continues to undergo dramatic changes, as its sister project Wikidata introduces a new multilingual "Wikipedia for data" (http://www.wikidata.org) to manage the factual information of the popular online encyclopedia. With Wikipedia's data ...

Moreover, we fixed some minor bugs (thanks for the bug reports). The final release (i.e., version 0.7) will soon be available so stay tuned! Link on, Axel

In Hoc Signo Vinces (part 20 of n): 100G and 1000G With Cluster; When is Cluster Worthwhile; Effects of I/O

In the introduction to scale out piece, I promised to address the matter of data-to-memory ratio, and to talk about when scale-out makes sense. Here we will see that scale-out makes sense whenever data does not fit in memory on a single commodity server. The gains in processing power are immediate, even when going from one box to just two, with both systems having all in memory. As an initial take on the issue we run 100 GB and 1000 GB on the test system. 100 GB is trivially in memory, 1000 GB is not, as the memory is 384 ...

For example, I have it compile and run test suits for a variety of software projects (like the CDK , NanoJava), but also have it build R packages, and even daily run Andra Waagmeester 's code to create RDF for ...
