In this lab, you will first discover the OpenStack ecosystem

and then we will practice creating a new OpenStack project included virtual network objects such as router, private network, floating IPs and security groups.

On this virtual network, we will launch new virtual machine instances from already installed image and also from newly created image.

We will practice creating volumes, and attaching a Cinder block storage volume using the Horizon dashboard. Finally we will create a cloud-int script to automate the launching of a LAMP server. 

Information extraction is the process of deriving structured information (such as alive(Elvis)) from digital text (such as the sentence "Elvis is alive"). We will focus on factual and semantic information extraction, i.e., we will cover named entity recognition, entity disambiguation, instance extraction, and fact extraction. We will also touch upon applications of both Information Extraction and the Semantic Web, such as Google’s knowledge graph, IBM’s Watson question answering system, and Facebook’s Open Graph, and academic projects such as YAGO, DBpedia, and NELL. Finally, we will talk about how the big Internet companies use the information that they extract and gather, and how we can protect ourselves against these practices.
