Enki is a fast 2D physics-based robot simulator. It is able to simulate cinematics, collisions, sensors, and cameras of robots on a flat surface. It also provides limited support for friction. It is able to simulate groups of robots hundreds of times faster than real-time on a modern desktop computer.
Teem is a software framework for conducting artificial evolution experiments. It particular, it provides lots of facilities for evolutionary robotics. It can be combined with a variety of libraries and programs to form a powerful platform for anything from evolution of simple Braitenberg behaviour to complex steady state evolutionary experiments involving groups of robots.
The RL-Glue is intended to provide a foundation for building benchmarks for reinforcement learning (RL) agents. A secondary goal is to support RL competitions in which agents are compared in their performance on new problems that are only revealed at the time of a competition. The current version of the interface software supports direct function call communication between agents and environments written in C. The interface software also provides a standard mechanism for communication between agents and environments written in different programming languages.
EvoJava is a program for interactively exploring intriguing concepts in computer science. From cellular automata and rule-based systems to fractals and genetic algorithms, EvoJava is an education tool for anyone interested in the "edges" of science. Or, if nothing else, it makes a lot of pretty pictures.
Isobel is a framework to build complex information retrieval and analysis systems. Isobel can be functionally divided in two subsytems, Isobel Gatherer (the crawling and filtering subsystem) and Isobel Analyzer (the analysis subsystem). The two subsytems can also be used separately. Isobel Gatherer offers ready-to-use services like content fetching, scheduling, document format conversion, Hyperlink graph storage and analysis, content storage and indexing. A programmer may easily add new services. Isobel Analyzer uses the IBM UIMA architecture to reuse the analysis components developed for this architecture.
N-genes is a Java framework and application for both genetic programming and genetic algorithms. The goal of this software is to offer a flexible system able to speed-up the implementation of research ideas. Complex behaviors like variable size populations or self-adaptive genetic operators can be implemented easily and quickly.
The Discrete Event Calculus Reasoner allows a programmer to add common-sense reasoning capabilities to programs. It supports deduction/temporal projection, abduction/planning, postdiction, and model finding. It allows default reasoning about action, change, space, and mental states. It is based on the event calculus, a comprehensive and highly usable logic-based formalism. It helps applications understand the world, make inferences, adapt to unexpected situations, and be more flexible.
SenseClusters is a natural language processing package that allows you to cluster similar contexts or to identify clusters of related words. It supports its own native methods based on first and second order representations of context, and also supports Latent Semantic Analysis. It is fully unsupervised, and can automatically discover the optimal number of clusters in your text. SenseClusters is a complete system that takes users from preprocessing of raw text to providing clustered output.
