nQube Technical Computing
nQube's goal is to remove the technical burdens of tough optimization and data-modeling problems, as much as possible, so that you can focus on your particular applications.
Qubist is a third party MATLAB® toolbox for global optimization, data modeling and visualization and is solely distributed by nQube Technical Computing.
The Qubist platform offers five complimentary optimization algorithms: Ferret, Locust, SAMOSA, Anvil and SemiGloSS. All Qubist optimizers are interchangeable and the package contains other tools to assist with the analysis and visualization of multi dimensional solution sets. Qubist's design includes seamless integration between its component optimizers, simplicity of use, extreme flexibility, built-in parallelization, visualization tools and "knowledge discovery" capabilities that go beyond any traditional optimizer.
The Ferret Genetic Algorithm is at the heart of a novel multi-objective
treatment planning system for cancer radiotherapy called PARETO
(Pareto-Aware Radiotherapy Evolutionary Treatment Optimization), which
is under development at the University of Manitoba.
