Open Source Academic Projects  


PyWI is a Python image filtering library aimed at removing additive background noise from raster graphics images (using wavelet transform).
The PyWI project has a dedicated web site at http://www.pywi.org.

Pyarm is a physics simulator which provides an anthropomorphic arm model for experiments on human like motor control.
The arm model is described in the following technical report written in French (sources).

Pyarm has been used at the Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics for experiments on adaptive systems. These experiments are described in the following academic paper "Learning cost-efficient control policies with XCSF: generalization capabilities and further improvement" by Didier Marin, Jérémie Decock, Lionel Rigoux and Olivier Sigaud.
This scientific contribution has been published in the "Proceedings of the 13th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation (GECCO'11)", the main international conference on genetic and evolutionary computation.
This paper can be downloaded here.

Botsim.org is a robots simulator mainly used to test some biologically inspired algorithms (machine learning, evolutionary algorithms, reinforcement learning, ...).

Our motivations: generate in-silico original artificial organisms which can efficiently accomplish some given tasks (move, change their environment, survive, ...).

More precisely, Botsim.org was written to:
  1. reproduce the experiments and the results of the projet Golem: optimize the morphology and control of robots in simulation via biologically inspired methods (evolutionary algorithms and neural networks) then materialize these self-generated organisms using a 3D printer;
  2. improve control of existing robots by generating a large number of in-silico simulations;
  3. reproduce some experiments on artificial curiosity by the Inria Flowers team.

The Botsim.org project has a dedicated web site at www.botsim.org.
