Dandelion is a 3D graph rendering application which can be controlled across a network. Its main purpose is to allow clear network graphs to be rendered in a window, which can be controlled by a separate application or the user. The Dandelion visualization is actually controlled by issuing simple commands to it across the network (although this could all be happening on a single machine). The Dandelion source includes a set of very simple libraries which can be incorporated into other applications and which can be used to send these commands. Libraries are included for C, C#, Java, and Python. The project was developed at Liverpool John Moores University within the PROTECT Centre.
VoltDB is a blazingly fast relational database system. It is specifically designed to run on modern scale-out architectures: fast, inexpensive servers connected via high-speed data networks. It is aimed at a new generation of database applications - real-time feeds, sensor-driven data streams, micro-transactions, low-latency trading systems - requiring database throughput that can reach millions of operations per second. What’s more, the applications that use this data must scale on demand, provide flawless fault tolerance, and enable real-time visibility into the data that drives business value. It includes client application drivers for applications written in Java, C++, C#, PHP, and Python. VoltDB community members have also authored client libraries for Erlang, Ruby and Node.js. There are streaming export capabilities for leading analytic database environments, including Apache Hadoop.
Agnos is a cross-language, cross-platform, lightweight RPC framework with support for passing objects by value or by reference. Agnos is meant to allow programs written in different languages to easily interoperate, by providing the needed bindings (glue-code) and hiding all the details from the programmer. The project essentially serves the same purpose as existing technologies like SOAP, WSDL, CORBA, and others, but takes a minimalistic approach to the issue at hand. Unlike the aforementioned technologies, which tend to require integration with Web servers, using verbose XML-based protocols on top of textual transports (HTTP), often also requiring complex topologies (such as name servers for registering objects, etc.). Agnos is designed to be simple, efficient, and straightforward, allowing for direct communication between two ends using a compact binary protocol.
MyMediaLite is a lightweight, multi-purpose library of recommender system algorithms. It addresses the two most common scenarios in collaborative filtering: rating prediction (e.g. on a scale of 1 to 5 stars), and item prediction from implicit feedback (e.g. from clicks or purchase actions). It contains dozens of recommender engines, including state-of-the-art matrix factorization methods. It also supports real-time updates to the recommender engines, storing engines to disk and reloading them again, and several evaluation measures to compare the accuracy of different recommender system methods. Three command-line programs that offer most of the functionality contained in the library are included.
Social ray is a platform for professional networking. Its collaboration features include friends and communities, mailboxes, instant messaging (using AJAX), a powerful search engine, document sharing, forums, vanity URLs for users, and rich media support. Its professional networking features include resume uploads, job searching, automatic job matching, testimonials, the ability to post jobs, job referrals, and accounts for recruitment consultants.
Indigo is a universal organic chemistry toolkit. It contains tools for end users, as well as a documented API for developers. It is based on a cheminformatics library that incorporates a number of unique algorithms developed by GGA Software Services, as well as some standard algorithms well known in the cheminformatics world. The API allows developers to integrate Indigo into their C/Java/C#/Python projects. Two Indigo-based Java GUI applications are provided: Legio (combinatorial chemistry) and chemdiff (visual comparison of two SDF or SMILES files). Three Indigo-based command line utilities written in plain C are provided: indigo-depict (molecule and reaction rendering utility), indigo-cano (canonical SMILES generator), and indigo-deco (R-Group deconvolution utility).
