OptiCat: Optimization and datamining for compound library design

Frederic Clerc  (4 December 2006)

OptiCat is a platform for building custom metaheuristic algorithms. Opticat is more specially designed for chemists / physicists who are seeking for user-friendly tools for design of experiments and who are neither expert in programming nor in advanced statistics. OptiCat is an Open Source software which can be used according the CeCILL license.

OptiCat is a platform for building custom metaheuristic algorithms.

Using this software, anyone can build its own algorithm easily. Simple drag and drop operations are enough to assemble data treatment bricks like a construction game, leading to the most complex algorithms.

The statistical aspect is a very important element insofar as the behavior of such algorithms changes from one test to another. That’s why OptiCat integrates powerful information restitution functionalities allowing secondary treatments with statistical tools.

OptiCat can answer many problems, from the more traditional to the most applied. In particular in combinatorial catalysis, this new tool has been developed for the growing need in soft computing tools.
