Swarm – A Transparently Scalable Distributed Programming Language

October 29, 2009

Swarm – A Transparently Scalable Distributed Programming Language
http://code.google.com/p/swarm-dpl/

Swarm is a framework allowing the creation of web applications which can scale transparently through a novel portable continuation-based approach. Swarm embodies the maxim “move the computation, not the data”. Swarm is implemented in Scala 2.8 (unreleased at the time of writing), and makes use of the delimited continuations plugin. Swarm is currently at an early stage of development, although it is able to migrate a thread between servers as needed. Currently the best way to learn about Swarm is to watch the video and then read about their current efforts on their OpenIssues page. Swarm was initially proposed by Ian Clarke in this blog post, although the concept has evolved considerably since then.

Neuroph – Java Neural Network Frramework
http://neuroph.sourceforge.net/

Neuroph is lightweight Java neural network framework to develop common neural network architectures. It contains well designed, open source Java library with small number of basic classes which correspond to basic NN concepts. Also has nice GUI neural network editor to quickly create Java neural network components. It has been released as open source under the LGPL license, and it’s FREE for you to use it. Neuroph simplifies the development of neural networks by providing Java neural network library and GUI tool that supports creating, training and saving neural networks. If you are beginner with neural networks, and you just want to try how they work without going into complicated theory and implementation, or you need them quickly for your research project the Neuroph is good choice for you. It is small, well documented, easy to use, and very flexible neural network framework. This has been added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

LORE: An e-Journal for Teachers of Writing

LORE: An e-Journal for Teachers of Writing
http://blogs.bedfordstmartins.com/bits/lore/

LORE is an e-journal for adjuncts and graduate students who teach writing at colleges and universities. This journal is designed to provide a forum for sharing knowledge, building communities, and voicing concerns about what happens in the classroom. LORE is a site for exploring and discussing experimental pedagogies and for engaging in lively, personal reflections about professional matters that inspire and irritate. It is also a place in which instructors may air grievances about how the academy relies upon yet undervalues their expertise. LORE is edited by assistant professors, adjuncts, and graduate students who have been teaching composition for a number of years and who care about composition as both a philosophical discipline and a lived experience. We invite and welcome your participation in on-going dialogues. LORE is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Content available online.

JEGP, Journal of English and Germanic Philology
http://www.press.uillinois.edu/journals/jegp.html

JEGP, Journal of English and Germanic Philology focuses on Northern European cultures of the Middle Ages, covering Medieval English, Germanic, and Celtic Studies. The word “medieval” potentially encompasses the earliest documentary and archeological evidence for Germanic and Celtic languages and cultures; the literatures and cultures of the early and high Middle Ages in Britain, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia; and any continuities and transitions linking the medieval and post-medieval eras, including modern “medievalisms” and the history of Medieval Studies.

JCVI Cloud BioLinux

October 28, 2009

JCVI Cloud BioLinux
http://www.jcvi.org/cms/research/projects/jcvi-cloud-biolinux/

JCVI Cloud BioLinux image enables scientists to quickly provision computation infrastructures supporting bioinformatics using cloud computing platforms such as Amazon EC2 and Eucalyptus. Upon deployment users will have instant access to a host of software including BLAST, glimmer, hmmer, phylip, rasmol, genespring, clustalw, the Celera Assembler, and the EMBOSS collection of utilities. JCVI Cloud BioLinux is built on a 64-bit instance of Ubuntu virtual server customized with bioinformatics packages from the BioLinux repository, and will be updated periodically. This image is meant to be a community resource. As such, they look to the community for suggestions on tools and software for incorporation, as well as general feedback or ideas that will enhance the value of the image to the entire community. To maximize this effort, they will be crowd sourcing and using forums to gather feedback, respond, and implement features. Many bioinformatics workflows involve large datasets in which high performance computing is needed. This moves the burden to the individual scientist for provisioning the computational infrastructure and technical expertise in order to setup and use the software for their research and storage needs. Cloud computing can provide researchers with the ability to perform computations using a practically unlimited pool of virtual machines, without facing the burden of owning or maintaining any hardware infrastructure. One of the major vendors of compute clouds is Amazon Web Services, which is based on the same infrastructure that powers the Amazon.com e-commerce website and executes millions of customer transactions monthly. The vision for JCVI Cloud BioLinux is to offer a base image of genome analysis resources for cloud computing platforms, such as Amazon EC2. This Science as a Service model (ScaaS) will allow JCVI to incorporate, develop and optimize life science software as well as supporting data sets on compute clouds. This project is driven by the observation that commonly-used bioinformatics tools are hard to build and maintain, require high amounts of resources, or just too numerous to choose from.
