The D-MASON enviroment enables execution of distributed multi-agent simulation models. In cooperation with ISISLab Salerno University (Italy) I work on tool that will automate creation of distributed computing clusters in the Amazon Web Services cloud. The tool will be created as a plugin to the MIT StarCluster enviroment - one of the most popular HPC tools for the cloud.
SOF is a toolset that utilizes the map-reduce model along with the Hadoop platform for HPC computations in the cloud.
The source code along with the technical documentation can be obtained at https://github.com/isislab-unisa/sof.
A detailed project concept is described in the paper: M. Carillo, G. Cordasco V., Scarano, F. Serrapica, C. Spagnuolo., P. Szufel, SOF: Zero Configuration Simulation Optimization Framework on the Cloud, In Proc. of 24th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Processing, Heraklion,Crete, 2016.
I have created a bash temaplate that enables rapid computing cluster creation in the cloud.
Starting is simple - just create any Ubuntu instance (e.g. t2.micro) in the Virginia region, copy
credentials.csv file to
/home/ubuntu and run the following commands
wget https://szufel.pl/sc_setup.sh bash sc_setup.sh
"Raising Open and User-friendly Transparency-Enabling Technologies for Public Administrations" (ROUTE-TO-PA) is a reasearch project financed by the 8th EU Framework Programme - Horizon 2020
ROUTE-TO-PA is an innovation project aimed at creating tools and software for increasing transparency of public administration.
The goal of the Decision Support and Analysis Division team is to create a multi-agent simulation tool to analyse preference elicitation in heterogenous communities.
The project web site is available at http://www.routetopa.eu/
Asynchronous Knowledge Gradient algorithm enables distributed stochasic optimization computations for ranking & selection problems.
Implementation in Java language of the Asynchronous Knowledge Gradient algorithm can be downloaded here.
Documentation of the algorithm is presented in paper:
