  • Caltech Infospheres Group 12/2/99 Who points to it? 16 - The Caltech Infospheres Project researchescompositional systems, which are systems built frominteracting components. We are concerned with the theoryand implementation of compositional systems that supportpeer-to-peer communication among persistent multithreadeddistributed objects.

  • Infospiders 1/2/00 Who points to it? 11 - University of California San Diego.InfoSpiders (aka ARACHNID: Adaptive Retrieval Agents Choosing Heuristic Neighborhoodsfor Information Discovery)This project features an artificial life inspired model using endogenous fitness for informationretrieval in large, dynamic, distributed, heterogeneous databases, such as the WWW. Apopulation of agents is evolved under density dependent selection for the task of locatinginformation for the user. The energy necessary for survival is obtained from both environmentand user in exchange for relevant information. By competing for energy, the agents robustlyadapt to their environment and are allocated to efficiently exploit their shared resources.

  • Social Interaction Framework (SIF) 1/2/00 Who points to it? 10 - DFKI (German Research Institute for AI).The Social Interaction Framework (SIF) is a tool for rapid-prototyping of simulations involvingmultiple agents. It supports the design by providing ready-to-use components and severaldebugging functions during run-time. With this software you can concentrate on agent-orienteddesign and the study of the interactions between agents. SIF takes care of issues such asparallel computing and visualization.

  • Aalaadin/MadKit 1/11/00 Who points to it? 9 - MadKit is a generic multi-agent platform, it provides general agentfacilities and allows high heterogeneity in agent architectures (from simulation-stylesituated agents to rule-based cognitive agents). Platform services are built as agents andthus can be customized or replaced easily.

  • TuCSoN: a Coordination Model for Internet Agents 1/11/00 Who points to it? 10 - TuCSoN is a model for the coordination of Internet agents.TuCSoN exploits a notion of local tuple-based interaction space, called tuple centre,which is a tuple space enhanced with the notion of behaviour specification. Byprogramming its behaviour in response to communication events, a tuple centre canembody coordination laws.

  • Ascape 9/21/00 Who points to it? 20 - Ascape is a research tool developed atBrookings Institution to support agent-based research. It is designedto be flexible and powerful, but also approachable, easy to use, andexpressive. A high-level framework supports complex model design,while end-user tools make it possible for non-programmers to exploremany aspects of model dynamics. It is written entirely in Java andshould run on any Java-enabled platform. Models developed within itcan be easily published to the web for use with common web browsers.

  • The Tween Project 10/30/00 Who points to it? 10 - The Tween Project is a 100% Java open source developmenteffort whose mission is to create autonomous objects that operate in avariety of MUD's, MOO's, MUSHes, and other collaborative environments withminimal changes to the software base. The autonomous object is built aroundthe Bot Operating system, a set of composable services, and a flexibleplug-in architecture. Together they allow programmers to easily addfunctionality to the autonomous objects without having to rewrite code fromscratch. This allows programmers and researchers to concentrate on thefunctionality that they are interested in without having to worry about thelow-level details inherent in constructing autonomous objects.

  • Simulation software for Complex Adaptive Systems 8/14/02 Who points to it? 17 - Professor Robert Goldstone (Psychology, Indiana University) has developed Macintosh simulation software for an undergraduate course that can be used to demonstrate how various types of complex adaptive systems adapt and evolve over time. Three applications are stressed: chaotic growth in animal populations; human learning, cooperation, and competition within social groups; and the evolution of artificial life. (ACE News)

  • The Mozart Programming System 6/15/01 Who points to it? 20 - The Mozart Programming System is an advanced development platformfor intelligent, distributed applications. Mozart is based on the Oz language, which supports declarativeprogramming, object-oriented programming, constraint programming,and concurrency as part of a coherent whole. For distribution, Mozartprovides a true network transparent implementation with support fornetwork awareness, openness, and fault tolerance.

  • NetLogo 7/7/02 Who points to it? 16 - NetLogo is the new cross-platform agent-based parallel modeling and simulation environment developed by the Center for Connected Learning and Computer-Based Modeling at Northwestern University.

  • An Abstract Agent Programmig Language 8/5/02 Who points to it? 15 - 3APL is a programming language forimplementing cognitive agents developed at Utrecht.. It providesprogramming constructs for implementingagent's beliefs, goals, basic capabilitiessuch as belief updates or motor actions,and a set of practical reasoning rulesthrough which agent's goals can beupdated or revised.

  • Avida auto-adaptive genetic system 5/9/03 Who points to it? 561 - Avida is an auto-adaptive genetic system designed as a platform in Digital or Artificial Life research. It allows one to study questions and perform experiments in evolutionalry dynamics and theoretical biology that are intractable in real biological system.
