Built-in Module Tests

In the previous post we discussed coding standards, and in this one we will examine the equally important subject of module/unit tests, and in particular the built-in module testing framework that Mitopia® provides, and which MitoSystems’ coding…

Coding Standards

Much has been written on the subject of coding standards and conventions over the years, and they are often the subject of vigorous debate.  In this post I want to give a brief overview of the MitoSystems (C…

Record Merging and Matching

In this post we will give a basic overview of the process Mitopia® goes through when matching and merging newly created records from MitoMine™ (or elsewhere) with the existing records in persistent storage. In order to…

Running MitoMine™

In the previous post we gave a brief overview of the MitoMine™ language itself, in this post we will look at how one goes about actually running MitoMine™. The most common way to run a MitoMine™…

MitoMine™ – Language Overview

In earlier posts I have introduced the Mitopia®-unique related topics of heteromorphic languages and of  the MitoMine™ approach to data mining and integration.  In this post we will go a little deeper into the MitoMine™ language…

Self modifying code

Back in my flight control software days, code was written in assembler, memory was scarce (a few 10’s of KB), and performance, reliability, redundancy, and self test requirements were at the extreme end of what was…

Moore’s law killed the robots!

Mitopia® to this day still contains a built-in and tightly integrated robotic mass storage subsystem known as MitoStore™ which was expressly designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of multimedia formats in a fully…

In search of meaningful metrics

In an earlier post I briefly touched on the subject of ingest performance and some of the tricks that Mitopia® uses to improve these ingest metrics in a distributed server context.  In today’s post I want…

A Stemming Framework

We have previously discussed the subject of stemming and its importance to search.  Now for historical perspecive, I want to explore Mitopia’s stemming framework which allows a variety of stemming algorithms and techniques to be combined…
