Controversial ideas of Williamson, Margulis & others suggest speciation by hybridizing might be more common than originally thought. Taking this concept to the nth degree & assuming that indeed, speciation mostly occurs by hybridizing events, not the accumulation of mutations or genetic drift, here is a catalogueoflife2gedcom converter. It allows the tree of life to be displayed as a human genealogy tree with hybridizing events depicted as "marriages." The idea then is that mutation accrual & genetic drift are the determining factors for "species maturation," not speciation itself. Unfortunately the Catalogue of Life Project, catalogueoflife.org, changed its database format more recently, so this converter only works on older versions of the data. In the last working version of the database, making the assumption that each taxonomic name, no matter what level, refers to an original real species & starting them all as female, over 2 million "species/persons" were generated.

Software to restore cyclorama (360 deg. panorama) from photos
This application allows visually restore a cyclorama from a set of photos covering 360 degrees in all directions to horizon. It was specially designed to restore panoramas obtained by Apollo missions in 1969-1972 but it can be used to restore any cyclorama from photos got in your tourist trip (for example). The main principle of the program is in projecting photos on a 360x360 sphere and combining it together. If you select a correct field of view (FOV) for photo images, its combination become ideal for distant points. For moon cyclorama it is also possible to check a Sun and Earth positions on the sky and to compare the result with a LOLA data (provided by the the LRO moon satellite).

Belief Revision via PS-Merge under constraints belief merging operator
Belief revision is a central topic in knowledge representation and reasoning. It consists in incorporating a new belief, changing as few as possible of the original beliefs while preserving consistency. Revision always considers new evidence as a better belief. Such new evidence is usually represented in the form of a propositional formula which must be preserved after the revision. Here, the Δps (PS-Merge) belief merging operator is extended in order to consider constraints, and this extension is used as a strategy for belief revision. The new evidence is treated as a constraint so the extended merging operator can obtain the revised belief base.

A simple Belief Merging Prototype
Belief merging aims at combining several pieces of (possibly inconsistent) information coming from different sources. The goal is to produce a single consistent set of information, trying to keep the most of the information of the sources. A belief merging operator is the responsible for making the belief merging. With this tool you can compare the ΔΣ, ΔGMax and the Δps (PS-Merge) operators.
