Below some current examples. Besides developing software, CWI has also contributed to the development of programming languages and new industry standards.
Part of CWI’s knowledge transfer is achieved by developing software, and making this available to researchers, industry and society. Some of our open source software tools are aimed to be used by a wide audience; others for scientists or businesses.
Squint: Experimenting in Prediction with Expert Advice problems
Squint provides a codebase to perform numerical proof-of-concept experiments in learning theory, particularly in Prediction with Expert Advice problems, a core problem in learning theory.
SWI-Prolog is the world's most popular implementation of the Prolog programming language.
SWISH (SWI)-Prolog for SHaring is a web based shared notebook environment for SWI-Prolog.
VideoLat: Measuring end-to-end delays in A/V systems
VideoLat is a toolset to measure the delays of audio-visual pipelines, such as teleconferencing systems.
VirtualLeaf: a modeling framework for plant tissue morphogenesis
VirtualLeaf is a computer modeling framework for the simulation of plant tissue morphogenesis, i.e., the biological development of an organism's shape.
VectorWise: a fast analytics database that handles continuous updates without a performance penalty
VectorWise (2008) is based on scientific research results and derives its strength from a completely new approach on data processing. The approach makes use of vector processing on data sets in which every vector is tailored to the size of the cache memory of modern processors.
