AI Matching Technique  -   Free  C++  Source

osmSrch - AI Engine for Object-Subject Matching problems:

Match: Workers to Tasks, Teachers to Classes,
         Containers to Storage-Slots, etc. etc.

osmSrch is based on a theory about how people solve "dirty hard"
problems.  The technique is used in a staff-scheduling engine
(which is also available).  Very little code produces a series
of potentially good solutions.

osmSrch is a set of four C++ classes and a header file.  You
write a bit of C++ (sample included) that sets up a data
structure that describes the problem, and you call a function
to search for a good solution.  AI in a can!

C programmers with access to a C++ compiler can easily create
a library that can be linked into C programs.  (Rename main()
in the sample program and you have a sample callable function.)

In order to promote the technique, this simple matching engine is
being offered, with source, free of charge.  Use the software
and/or learn a new approach to artificial intelligence.

Analysis, integration and customization services are available.
