YAGO2 - D5: Databases and Information Systems (Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik) Overview YAGO is a huge semantic knowledge base, derived from Wikipedia WordNet and GeoNames. Currently, YAGO has knowledge of more than 10 million entities (like persons, organizations, cities, etc.) and contains more than 120 million facts about these entities. YAGO is special in several ways: The accuracy of YAGO has been manually evaluated, proving a confirmed accuracy of 95%. Every relation is annotated with its confidence value.YAGO combines the clean taxonomy of WordNet with the richness of the Wikipedia category system, assigning the entities to more than 350,000 classes.YAGO is an ontology that is anchored in time and space. YAGO is developed jointly with the DBWeb group at Télécom ParisTech University.

Deploying a Django App on Dokku - Guest post written by Michael Herman, hacker at and co-founder of Real Python, about deploying a Django app on Dokku. What is Dokku? A few days ago I was pointed towards the project Dokku. Dokku is a "Docker powered mini-Heroku" that you can deploy on your own server to serve as your own private PaaS. Why would you want your own mini-Heroku? Dokku ties Docker together with Gitrecieve and Buildstep into one package that is easily deployed, forked/hacked, and updated. What You Need To Get Started You could use anything from AWS to a computer on your own private network. The requirements for hosting Dokku are simple: Ubuntu 13.04 x64SSH Capabilities, andJeff suggests having a domain name on hand so it's easy to point to your apps. First, I signed up for an account on DigitalOcean. Next, I created my first "droplet" (spun up a node) by clicking "Create Droplet". Installing Dokku Now that our host is all set up it's time to install and configure Dokku. For example, I used: Finally, PUSH to:

Knopper.Net Consulting ELF STATIFIER MAIN PAGE Named Entity Demo About the Named Entity Demo Named entity recognition finds mentions of things in text. The interface in LingPipe provides character offset representations as chunkings. Genre-Specific Models Named entity recognizers in LingPipe are trained from a corpus of data. The examples below extract mentions of people, locations or organizations in English news texts, and mentions of genes and other biological entities of interest in biomedical research literature. Language-Specific Models Although we're only providing English data here, there is training data available (usually for research purposes only) in a number of languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, German, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish. LingPipe's Recognizers LingPipe provides three statistical named-entity recognizers: Sentence Annotation Included The demos use the appropriate sentence models.

Working with Schema Names in Entity Framework Code-First Design | Entity Framework content from Dev Pro Related: "Improve Performance with Entity Framework 5" and "Thoughts on Microsoft's Entity Framework." In my last column about Entity Framework's code-first design feature, I explained to readers about my session at PASS Summit 2011. One of the questions I didn't have time to explore in my session is how you can work with database schema names other than being the database owner (DBO). On one hand, the options aren't very obvious, but on the other it's a capability that would be hard to imagine the Entity Framework developers overlooking. Fortunately this capability wasn't overlooked, and after you see how the basic feature works, schema names become pretty easy to work with. I'll use the same sample application from last month's column, Ordering.sln, which is a simple ordering system with Customer, Address, and Order entities. Figure 2: Database Schema in SQL Server Management Studio Figure 4: Updated Database Schema So far, so great. Voilà! Figure 5: Final Schema

How To install wine on knoppix: xplay tutorial What are we trying to do here? The goal of this tutorial is to get XMPlay up and running using WINE under Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 "Edgy Eft" and WINE 0.9.30 for now and had some success getting XMPlay to play music. If you know any tweaks that make XMPlay run more stable under WINE, let me know! What you will need Admin rightsWINEa copy of XMPlaybasic knowledge on terminal usage Getting started Get your music from your Windows hard disk - mount a NTFS drive If you came from WinXP, you probably have your music on a NTFS-formatted HD. Open a terminal and type fdisk -l to find your Windows partition. sudo mkdir /mnt/c Then mount your NTFS partition in read-only mode to the directory you just created, like so: sudo mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/c/ -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 Now, you can access your files on your NTFS Windows partition via your Linux file manager (e.g. Automatic mounting You can also let Ubuntu do the mounting automatically at startup - open another terminal and type: Configuring WINE

How do I set up hugepages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4? by The editorial team Contributed by Michael Kearey Release Found: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Resolution: Hugepages can be allocated using the /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages entry, or by using the sysctl command. To view the current setting using the /proc entry: # cat /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages 0 To view the current setting using the sysctl command: # sysctl vm.nr_hugepages vm.nr_hugepages = 0 To set the number of huge pages using /proc entry: # echo 5 > /proc/sys/vm/nr_hugepages To set the number of hugepages using sysctl : # sysctl -w vm.nr_hugepages=5 vm.nr_hugepages = 5 It may be necessary to reboot to be able to allocate all the hugepages that is needed. It is recommended that the /etc/sysctl.conf file should be used to allocate hugepages at boot time. vm.nr_hugepages = 5 Red Hat’s customer service and support teams receive technical support questions from users all over the world.

Entity Extractor SDK Finds People, Places, and Organizations in Text Big Text represents the vast majority of the world’s big data. Lying hidden within that text is extremely valuable information, unable to be accessed unless read manually—a challenge compounded when foreign languages are involved. This hidden data often comes in the form of entities—names, places, dates, and other words and phrases that establish the real meaning in the text. Rosette® Entity Extractor (REX) instantly scans through huge volumes of multilingual, unstructured text and tags key data. As linguistics experts with deep understanding at the intersection of language and technology, Basis Technology continually improves the Rosette product family with language additions, feature updates, and the latest innovations from the academic world.

GitSetup < Main < TWiki Git repositories allow for many types of workflows, centralized or decentralized. Before creating your repo, decide which steps to follow: Create A Local Repository If you will be working primarily on a local machine, you may simply create a git repo by using cd to change to the directory you wish to place under version control, then typing: git init To initialize a git repo in that directory. Create A Remote Repository If you will be working with your code primarily on patas, you will likely want to create your initial repository there. ssh to cd to the directory you wish to place under version control type "git init" in this directory. Cloning the Remote Repository If you wish to maintain a local copy of your code, you can clone the repository from patas by doing the following: Create a Shared Repository on Patas If you will be working with a group, using Patas as a centrally-located server to coordinate your checkins is a good idea, but takes some setting up.
