NEST is a powerful tool to simulate biologically derived spiking Neural
Networks. Besides the ever improving model details, learning paradigms
and computational complexity, there are two complementary components
necessary in order to simulate a (full) biologically plausible mammalian
brain: Running simulations at large scale and embodying the brain
simulation in a (virtual) body.
In frame of the Fenix Infrastructure Webinar series I am going to
present "Embodied large scale spiking neural networks in the
Neurorobotics Platform" with a focus on the deployment on High
Performance Computing Infrastructure next week Thursday. The
presentation showcases the joint work of developers from NEST and the
Neurorobotics Platform, the CSCS Swiss National Supercomputing centre
and researchers in the RoboBrain project.
