How Google, IBM, Adobe & Hart are Focused on Creating and Promoting Vendor Neutral APIs - Mo Alkady, Hart
The development of modern web APIs has been a boon for the development community, as a singular simple language has the potential to cultivate a community of innovation and iteration within an industry. Healthcare — arguably one of society’s most important sectors — could advance huge benefits to the population as a result of technical innovation and iteration; however, for the last decade, institutional healthcare has lagged in promoting developer growth and openness. In response to this challenge, Hart is striving to create a unified health API. Developers can integrate this RESTful API into consumer applications to create more targeted, personalized patient experiences and effectively change the way people interact with their own health — from their front door to their doctor’s office, and at other significant touchpoints in between.

Exploring and Optimizing Scalability for High Performance Virtual Switching - Zhihong Wang, Intel
Open vSwitch (OvS) is a Linux Foundation collaborative project. By using the Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) as a netdev, it provides a high performance virtual switch solution suitable for enterprise and telco deployments. Early observation shows the aggregated throughput drops with the increasing of virtual machine (VM) instances under heavy traffic. In order to support many-instance high bandwidth scenarios, investigation and optimization are done to address this issue.

This session introduces the latest findings on boosting OvS scalability by optimizing cache performance and CPU utilization. Experiment using OvS-DPDK as reference infrastructure proves that the optimization applied can provide 3x the throughput compared with the baseline while handling 30 guests and no significant performance degradation as VM number increases. This analysis can be applied to any virtual switch.

Advanced Document Similarity with Apache Lucene - Alessandro Benedetti, Sease Ltd
Being your core domain involving real world entities ( such as hotels, restaurant, cars ...) or text documents, searching for similar entities, given one in input, is a very common use case for most of the systems that involve information retrieval.

This presentation will start describing how much this problem is present across a variety of different scenarios and how you can use the More Like This feature in the Apache Lucene library to solve it.

Building on the introduction the focus will be on how the More Like This module internally works, all the components involved end to end, BM25 text similarity metric and how this has been included through a cospicuos refactor and testing process.

The presentation will include real world usage examples and future developments such as improved query building through positional phrase queries and term relevancy scoring pluggability.
