The workshop focus on simulation of spiking neural networks using PyNN 0.8 on the SpiNNaker platform. Topics include:
Introduction to SpiNNaker hardware & software
Specifying networks in PyNN 0.8
Using the HBP portal
Simple data I/O and visualisation
Connecting external devices to SpiNNaker
Adding new neuron & synapse models
Adding new learning rules
The workshop consists of sessions of presentations by the software team as well as hands-on labs with SpiNNaker hardware. There will also be time to discuss your own project plans and issues with the design team during the week.
