The ghostream project is centered around defining a new era of software development. The aim is to enable developers to rapidly produce high throughput, low latency systems capable of processing billions of events a day. ghostream inverts the typical relationship developers have with data. Without access to all the data at once, developers have to consider which parts of the data they absolutely need to arrive at a particular goal. Because of the need to keep the system moving, hanging on to data is an anti-pattern, forcing developers to consider how to take advantage of the data as quickly as possible. This results in components and systems that are scalable, fault tolerant, and uniquely suited for distributed environments.
openTCS is a platform-independent transportation control system (TCS) intended to control automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), but which can be used to steer virtually any (track-guided) vehicle. It consists of an abstract kernel which implements replaceable algorithms and strategies (computation of routes, dispatching of orders to vehicles, scheduling of resources, etc.), pluggable vehicle drivers which implement communication protocols, and a graphical frontend for creating and visualizing logical models of areas the vehicles are moving in.
The Noble Ape Simulation is a collection of a number of autonomous simulation components including a landscape simulation, biological simulation, weather simulation, sentient creature (Noble Ape) simulation, and a simple intelligent-agent scripting language (ApeScript). Noble Ape also contains a social simulation where the Noble Apes can be tracked in terms of social groups and also over many generations to explain social phenomenon to users looking to study this kind of interaction. It has been in development for more than a fifteen years.
NimBorg is a library for accessing Lua and Python libraries from within Nimrod code. It wraps the C API of these languages with macros which make the code far more readable than the low-level API, and also automatically handles the memory management interface of these languages so that objects aren't deallocated as long as they're accessible from your Nimrod code.
Portable Computing Language (pocl) aims to become an efficient implementation of the OpenCL standard. In addition to producing an easily-portable Open Source implementation, another major goal of the project is improving performance portability of OpenCL programs with compiler optimizations, reducing the need for target-dependent manual optimizations. At the core of pocl is a set of LLVM passes used to statically parallelize multiple work items with the kernel compiler, even in the presence of work group barriers. This enables parallelization of the fine-grained static concurrency in the work groups in multiple ways (SIMD, VLIW, superscalar, etc.). The code base is modularized to allow easy adding of new "device drivers" in the host-device layer. A generic multithreaded "target driver" is included. It allows running OpenCL applications on a host which supports the pthread library with multithreading at the work group granularity.
Langer is an object oriented, rule based programming language. Its interpreter is shipped as a Python library. It was created to express behavior strategies, has a simple syntax based on languages like Python and C, and was designed to be convenient and readable for a programmer, but it can be easily used in genetic programming as well.
Qore PostgreSQL Module is a DBI driver module for the Qore programming language to communicate with PostgreSQL databases. The PostgreSQL driver transparently handles client and server character encodings, supports multi-threading, transaction management, stored procedure execution, and more.
