Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper presents a toolbox of solutions that enable the user to construct biologically-inspired spiking neural networks with tens of thousands of neurons and millions of connections that can be simulated in real time, visualized in 3D and connected to robots and other devices. NeMo is a high performance simulator that works with a variety of neural and oscillator models and performs parallel simulations on either GPUs or multi-core processors. SpikeStream is a visualization and analysis environment that works with NeMo and can construct networks, store them in a database and visualize their activity in 3D. The iSpike library provides biologically-inspired conversion between real data and spike representations to support work with robots, such as the iCub. Each of the tools described in this paper can be used independently with other software, and they also work well together.
