Distributed Computing Systems provides free and open source software. The products relate to distributed systems and computing, with a focus on AI algorithms. Text processing and search are also central themes.
My background is University-based, where I worked for several years, both as a software engineer and as a researcher. Since then, I have written a book in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, the Internet and SOA, and published a number of papers that describe my own cognitive model.
I am currently available for freelance work in programming, research, writing, or consultancy. I would also be interested in any sources of funding and/or collaboration.
A summary of my work experience is as follows:
- Experienced software engineer, with the design and development of products over the whole software life-cycle.
- Main programming languages are Java and C#, with some web-based and mobile knowledge.
- Algorithm development, particularly for Artificial Intelligence and distributed systems. Also test programs.
- Server-side programming and Windows-based GUI development.
- With an academic background, I am strong in research and technical writing, where my research interests include Artificial Intelligence (autonomous, agent-based, cognitive or neural systems), heuristics, search or query processes and distributed information systems.
The software is listed on the following pages. The first two products are what I use to sort my daily routine. They can save a lot of time and are geared more towards an individual or small business. A short summary is as follows:
Licas is a distributed service-based and AI framework, with many useful features for building your own system. There is also a set of free business applications.
I have written a program that can display clusters of the Covid-19 cases in an iteractive GUI. You can download it here. The program uses the licas 'FrequencyGrid' to cluster and so it might be an interesting alternative to the more traditional methods. The source code is also provided in the download. I think this is as far as I can go.
Latest updates, bug fixes, etc.
1. HttpCore base server removed and recent bug fixes for this.
2. Service updates - Information service can now use comma-separated filter list.
1. The full version is now free.
2. Bug fixes, including Toolbar search and Project form.
Code Analyzer (3/18):
1. Only the full version as unlikely to be updated.
2. Licas script removed. May be used again in a different program.
