WikiBrain is a great technology that brings a bunch of AI research back to Wikipedia. One of the key technologies to having things like semantic-relatedness on-demand is being able to have very large memory-mapped files. These are currently running in the 200GB range for English Wikipedia. Because the largest labs VM can only support up to 120GB of disk space, WikiBrain is currently running on University of Minnesota hardware. We should have this awesome resource on labs.
