Mission of the project

gpCAM is an API and software designed to make autonomous data acquisition and analysis for experiments and simulations faster, simpler and more widely available. The tool is based on a flexible and powerful Gaussian process regression at the core. The flexibility stems from the modular design of gpCAM which allows the user to implement and import their own Python functions to customize and control almost every aspect of the software. That makes it possible to easily tune the algorithm to account for various kinds of physics and other domain knowledge, and to identify and find interesting features. A specialized function optimizer in gpCAM can take advantage of HPC architectures for fast analysis time and reactive autonomous data acquisition.


Simple API

The API is designed in a way that makes it easy to be used


Powerful Computing

gpCAM is implemented using torch and DASK for fast training and predictions


Advanced Mathematics for Increased Flexibility

gpCAM allows the advanced user to import their own Python functions to control the training and prediction


Software for the Novice and the Expert

Simple approximation and autonomous-experimentation problems can be set up in minutes; the options for customization are endless
