About the internship

Description :

You will be working on the Multivac Platform developed at ISCPIF. Multivac Platform is one of the biggest academic repositories with over 75 billion documents hosted across 100 servers on dedicated servers and cloud services. The datasets contain metadata from published scientific papers and social networks with a wide range of topics. Multivac platform is meant as an interface between researchers and Big Data, especially in the domain of NLP and text mining. It offers services such as comprehensive dashboards that enable scientists to explore and discover facts with a wider overview of large-scale data through visualizations. It also offers API access that allows researchers to exploit this huge architecture and computation without any prior technical knowledge. In addition, Multivac Data Science Lab offers interactive notebooks over Apache Hadoop/Spark cluster in private Cloud.

Why Multivac Platform :

Multivac Platform is built by cutting-edge technologies such as:

  • Large-scale databases (MongoDB and Redis with over 12 billion documents)
  • Search engine clusters (Elasticsearch/Kibana with over 6 billion documents)
  • Distributed computations and real-time processing (RabbitMQ, NodeJS, etc.)
  • Cloudera Hadoop 2.0 with interactive Spark notebooks (HDFS, YARN, Apache Spark, Apache Hive, Apache HBase, Apache Zeppelin, Hue, etc.)
  • Cloud services (OpenStack)

You get to learn all about these new technologies and have access to Multivac Data Science Lab. Multivac Platform hosts over 14 billion data with over 50 million data every day.
