I had an honor to lead LCSB_LUX team, which ranked 5., 11., and 7. out of 25 teams (in the leaderboard, validation, and post-challenge phase respectively).
The first official public release of Ada Discovery Analytics -version 0.7.3- with two installation guides (Linux/Ubuntu and MacOS) is out:
Working tirelessly now on the next release (0.8.0), which will introduce several key improvements, especially for the persistence layer.
Our paper titled “Shift-symmetric Configurations in Two-dimensional Cellular Automata: Irreversibility, Insolvability, and Enumeration” got published in Chaos!
Hoping for a revival of the cellular automata field.
To better explain the enumeration and probability calculation part of our paper “Shift-Symmetric Configurations in Two-Dimensional Cellular Automata: Irreversibility, Insolvability, and Enumeration,” which is currently under preparation (preprint available here), I’ve created a little supplementary web page and added it to COEL project as a new Symmetry section:
It’s freely accessible so go ahead and give it a try!
I’m happy to announce that Apr 28th COEL framework became open-source as defined by the standard Apache Licence 2.0.

Our paper titled “Learning Two-input Linear and Nonlinear Analog Functions with a Simple Chemical System” has been accepted to Unconventional Computing & Natural Computing 2014 conference which will be held in London, Ontario this summer. Check out a preprint of our paper here.
Our work on chemical learning was featured in a recent article published at Chemistry World by renowned science writer Philip Ball.
Our papers referenced in the article are:

Thanks to a GridGain academic licence the COEL framework enjoyes a scalable zero-deployment computational grid, which flawlessly fits to our Spring-backed IoC container. The grid can employ up to 512 cores to run mainly chemical simulations, dynamics analyses, and evolutionary optimizations of rate constants.
In Sept ’13 GridGain and PSU released a short press statement (260 pick-ups) describing our colaboration:
