Qt In Scientific Researches

The information contained here are by no means exhaustive so all related additions are very welcome.

Current state

After discussion during this round table session, it seems that Qt’s current uses are mostly for:

  • Tooling
  • Data visualization
  • Data Modeling
  • GUI on top command line tools

Some of the libraries used in common with Qt are:

  • OpenCV for image processing
  • VTK for data visualization

Otherwise, purpose specific libraries that implement e.g. neural networks. It’s always better to use the most suitable tool for a task rather than try to do everything with a more general purpose library.

Some of the current uses:

  • Medical devices
  • Earthquake simulator
