DREAM (The Distributed Resource Evolutionary Algorithm Machine) seeks to provide the technology and software infrastructure necessary to support the next generation of evolving infohabitants in a way that makes that infrastructure universal, open, and scalable. It will use existing hardware infrastructure in a much more efficient manner, by utilising otherwise-unused CPU time. It will allow infohabitants to co-operate, communicate, negotiate and trade; and emergent behaviour is expected to result. It is expected that there will be an emergent economy that results from the provision and use of CPU cycles by infohabitants and their owners. The DREAM infrastructure will be evaluated with new work on distributed data mining, distributed scheduling, and the modelling of economic and social behaviour.
The Robot Auto Racing Simulator (RARS) consists of a simulation of the physics of cars racing on a track, a graphic display of the race, and a separate control program (robot "driver") for each car. The goal of the game is to implement such a control program in order to compete against other programmers. An official formula one season is held every year.
EAsea Specification of Evolutionary Algorithms (EASEA), is a high-level language dedicated to the specification of evolutionary algorithms. The language and compiler are quite mature. EASEA compiles .ez specification files into C++ or Java object files, using existing evolutionary libraries. Supported C++ libraries currently are GALib or EO.
PyStem is a fast Python module with the the Porter stemming algorithm (a process for removing the commoner morphological and inflexional endings from words in English; its main use is as part of a term normalisation process that is usually done when setting up Information Retrieval systems).
Jess is a fast, light rule engine and scripting environment written entirely in Java. You can build Java software that has the capacity to "reason" using knowledge you supply in the form of declarative rules. It is supplied as a programmer's library, making it ideal for embedding in larger applications. Jess includes development tools built on the Eclipse platform. It is free for academic use and can be licensed for commercial use.
YAKS - Yet Another Khepera Simulator, is a Khepera simulator that uses prerecorded sensor values from a real robot in order to provide simulation speeds of 3600 times reality. It has support for the infrared sensors, light sensors, K213 vision turret, gripper arm, and more. The simulator comes with a GTK interface, a genetic algorithm (GA), and an artificial neural net (ANN).
