We are a research group in the Software Science Laboratory of the Institute of Cybernetics (IoC), a leading computer science research institution of Estonia. We take advantage of visual and high-level programming languages, logic and proof-search technologies to develop user-friendly and flexible tools for automated program composition, modelling and simulations.
The current members of the modelling and simulation group are:
We collaborate with Prof. Emeritus Gunnar Grossschmidt of the Department of Machinery of the Tallinn University of Technology , Prof. Mihhail Matskin from KTH and Prof. Grigori Mints from Stanford University
Our further colleagues are in Logic and Semantics Group led by Tarmo Uustalu.
We are aiming at a tool development that enables modeling and simulation of complex systems and automated program composition. We do research and take advantage of the following fields:
We were the organizing team behind these international events:
JCKBSE 2006, SiMa seminar 2009, ECIW 2011, BalticDB&IS 2014
If you are a student and would like to write a MSc or PhD thesis with us, do not hesitate to contact us. Here are some example topics we propose.
During a number of decades several software tools that facilitate program synthesis features have been developed by our group :
We consider building just the tools without any applications not fun. Most of the ideas and realization approaches are there due to the tasks from the real life. The following is a limited list of applications made:
