Here you can find a partial list of external links I like, use or simply want to share... This page will probably be updated quite often. Coming soon : a list of bibliographical databases on DAI and AL (well, as soon as I have time to compile it).
A few essential Research Links (at least for me)
- Amorphous Computing HomePage : fascinating journey into what might well become the computer science of the 21st century. Imagine a world populated by millions of small reactive agents...
- www.multiagent.com : a very well-organized list of bookmarks, updated everyday, about multi-agent systems can be found here. It's worth a look.
- Agents Portal : a weblog based portal for MAS. Very intelligently organized.
- The AgentWeb a comprehensive guide to the agents world on Internet. Very well organized, and regularly updated.
- The Journal of Artificial Societies & Social Simulation, a must read for people interested in agent-based simulation
- The Santa-Fe Institute and its complete Artificial Life site.
- Some Robotics Links for those of you interested in building (or buying) collective autonomous robotics systems.
- Speaking about robotics, take a look at Sony's Entertainment Robot, based on the impressive Open-R architecture.
- A very good list of links related to IBM (not the PC maker, but the Individual Based Modeling, i.e. agent-based modeling and simulation) tools, techniques and researches is here. The french translation should be available soon on my site (here)
Personal Computer (I mean : Apple Macintosh) Links
- Version Tracker: up-to-date information on the latest MacOS software versions.
- In case you have a problem, MacFixIt should help you in finding a solution. Your system engineers should bookmark it.
- MacNN: general MacOS information updated on a daily basis.
- MacInTouch: more accurate and serious information.
- MacOsRumors (guess ;-)
- Go2Mac Page: for those of you lucky enough (like me) to own a splendid PowerBook G4.
- In case you really need to .. ahem .. use Windows on your Mac, or use your Mac in a Wintel (aka hostile) environment, the MacWindows site should help you in surviving.
- In case you have not yet switched to MacOS X Jaguar, Linux on the Mac is mature enough to be used as a complete OS replacement. LinuxPPC provides the latest RedHat distribution, and is completely source-compatible with its PC counterparts. Its speed on a G4 is impressive.
Links I use for my lectures on OO techniques
- The home of most Smalltalk products (including VisualWorks and Smalltalk Express) : Smalltalk.org. Give it a try ! It is still the best programming environment, and much better than any Java one.
- If you like or use UML, Rational site is worth a look. At least, you can download an evaluation copy of Rational Rose (only for Windows).
- In case you have a Mac (congratulations), the best shareware OMT & UML-based CASE tool is ObjectPlant. Don't forget to pay the fee, it will allow you to make some very interesting reverse engineering on your existing code.
- Unless a terrifying devil has forced you to use Visual J++, the best cross-platform environments for developing in Java is Metrowerks's CodeWarrior (an IDE which includes C, C++ and ObjectPascal as well - now a property of Motorola).
- If you need to take the tube or buses in Paris, take a look at the RATP website (complete maps, easy pathfinding...).
- A choice of hotels and places to visit in Paris is provided on this site.
- The best search site for french websites is Voila. If you really want to pay your fee to Uncle Sam, you can try Yahoo, or even Lycos. But I bet that Google is already your favorite search engine :)
