HOPSPACK solves derivative-free optimization problems in a C++ software framework. The framework enables parallel operation using MPI (for distributed machine architectures) and multithreading (for single machines with multiple processors or cores). Optimization problems can be very general: functions can be noisy, nonsmooth, and nonconvex, linear and nonlinear constraints are supported, and variables may be continuous or integer-valued.
ca-ga is a toy artificial life simulation that uses genetic algorithms on large cellular automata. It uses simple but easily extended DNA that is 8k long by default, though you can take the size out to anything you have time to evolve. It sits under each cell of a 128x128 board and orders operations to transfer energy in the hopes of achieving a kill and breed. The simulation features a mutating fitness function, emergent sex, and a proof of concept real world fitness function. After enough generations, the cells or genes could achieve collectivism and organismhood, coordinating the values of the hotspots that determine board temperature in order to maintain a desired equilibrium. But maybe not. If you work in a fitness function, an optimizing problem solver results.
Easysync allows you to synchronize files among different computers. You pick up a directory you want to synchronize and Easysync will perform synchronisation whenever this directory is changed. The server part propagates the sync signal among clients, so that if there is a change on one client, all other clients will perform synchronization. It is based on Unison.
Athena Framework for Java is a full fledged enterprise object-relational mapping (ORM) framework that employs metadata as mapping configuration. It greatly simplifies Java Web application development by removing the requirement of manual mapping and manual database schema updating. In addition to features like Java object persistence, powerful EJBQL querying execution, and comprehensive code generation, Athena has built-in support for multi-tenancy, which enables developers to build cloud applications easily. Athena can be easily integrated with other libraries like Struts or Spring to provide full stacks of service.
WikiPL provides a Python programming environment hosted in a MediaWiki server. Each article in the wiki contains either a Python function or a class named as the article's title. Moreover, the article can contain the source code, documentation, unit tests, development edition, permissions, and form elements for the parameters of the function. Users can view the documentation or edit and execute the source code. Execution can happen either on the local computer, on a remote server, or in the browser (through Pyjamas). Code in one article can be invoked by another article through regular function calls, without any changes to the syntax of the Python language. It also offers a package that imports article code into a local Python namespace for offline development.
AKVIS HDRFactory creates HDR images from a series of photographs taken at different exposures or from a single photograph. This technique generates stylized images with fabulous colors and unique effects. The software also includes an efficient deghosting tool for removing artifacts that sometimes appear when combining photos with moving objects. It can also be used for photo correction.
