The HBP will design, implement and operate a Neuromorphic Computing Platform that allows non-expert neuroscientists and engineers to perform experiments with configurable Neuromorphic Computing Systems. The NCS will be hardware devices incorporating state-of-the-art electronic component and circuit technologies as well as new knowledge arising from other areas of HBP research (experimental neuroscience, theory, brain modelling). Custom hardware is being developed at locations in Heidelberg, Germany (the NM-PM system) and Manchester, United Kingdom (the NM-MC system). The platform will provide remote access to both NCS, software tools for their configuration, operation and the analysis of generated data as well as user support documentation, training workshops and a consulting service. Platform users will be able to study network implementations of their choice including simplified versions of brain models developed on the Brain Simulation Platform or generic circuit models based on theoretical work.
Featuring Karlheinz Meier, Uni Heidelberg and Steve Furber, University of Manchester.
This platform is highly integrated with Subproject 7: High performance computing.
