Gerbil consists of an interactive visualization tool targeted at multispectral and hyperspectral image data, and a toolbox of common algorithms, e.g. for segmentation. Multispectral imaging has been gaining popularity and has been gradually applied to many fields besides remote sensing. However, due to the high dimensionality of the data, both human observers and computers have difficulty interpreting this wealth of information. Gerbil facilitates the visualization of the relationship between spectral and topological information in a novel fashion. It puts emphasis on the spectral gradient, which is shown to provide enhanced information for many reflectance analysis tasks. It also includes a rich toolbox for evaluation of image segmentation and other algorithms in the multispectral domain. The parallel coordinates visualization technique is combined with hashing for a highly interactive visual connection between spectral distribution, spectral gradient, and topology.
Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays efficiently. Theano features tight integration with numpy, transparent use of a GPU, efficient symbolic differentiation, speed and stability optimizations, dynamic C code generation, and extensive unit-testing and self-verification. Theano has been powering large-scale computationally intensive scientific investigations since 2007. But it is also approachable enough to be used in the classroom (IFT6266 at the University of Montreal).
The Smart Card Detective (SCD) is a general framework for research on smart cards. It allows you to monitor any smart card application (including Chip and PIN / EMV transactions) and create your custom applications. The software is completely open source, and the hardware can be bought from Smart Architects. The device has a smart card interface as well as a terminal/reader interface, allowing the SCD to act as a passive/active monitor between a card and a reader or emulate a card or a terminal. Using the Python command line interface, you can interact with the SCD using a PC. This allows more flexible operation, although the SCD also features many stand-alone applications and a battery so that you can also use it without a PC.
The ATRACO Project is a prototype implementation of a trusted ambient ecology system that runs and manages activity spheres in an Ambient Intelligence Space. Activity spheres are realized by automatically discovering, selecting, and adapting smart devices (artefacts) existing in the space, according to user's preferences, customs, and activities. OWL ontologies are used for modeling user profile, devices, activities, and goal descriptions. Abstract plans are bound to specific devices, methods, and values through semantic matching.
YML is a research project that aims to provide tools for using global computing middleware such as GRID, peer to peer, and metacomputing environments. The YML software architecture enables the definition of parallel applications, independently of the underlying middleware used. Parallel applications are defined using a workflow language called YvetteML.
LabKey Server is open source software that helps scientists manage, analyze, and share complex datasets. It supports tandem mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, assays for neutralizing antibodies, Luminex, observational studies, and secure, Web-based collaboration. The software is modular, configurable, and customizable. It can be installed in your institution on any modern hardware and operating system. It is designed to integrate with your existing systems, instruments, and work flows, and to be readily adapted by skilled programmers to novel methods of inquiry. The project is under active development by a team of professional software engineers and a community of active contributors. New versions are released about four times per year.
eLabFTW is an electronic laboratory notebook system. Once installed on a server, every member of a lab can write up their experiments, upload files, manage a database of products (antibodies, chemicals, siRNA, papers, or whatever you want). It was created with usability and security in mind, is very easy to use, and has a long list of features specific to research life.
