The Neuromorphic Computing platform: Getting started
For an introduction, please read the silicon brains 'homepage'.
To use the Neuromorphic computing platform (SpiNNaker and BrainScaleS machines. Getting an HBP account and using the neuromorphic computing systems for evaluation and currently also for research is free of charge):
- Check out the documentation: HBP Neuromorphic Computing Platform Guidebook, also available as downloadable .pdf version
- Get an HBP account (either ask any colleagure who already has an HBP account to invite you or send an email to: email@example.com)
- Sign the Platform User Agreement form an send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Read the overview text in the prototype collab
- Create your own collab
- Request a resource allocation using the "Resource Manager" link in your new collab (a test-quota is included. Only for productin work another quota request is needed and only then we will have to ask you for a copy of your passport)
- Run your own neuromorphic simulations via the "Job Manager" link in your new collab, using your own PyNN described network and you own input data (or use the Jupyter notebook in your browser).
- If anything fails: see the getting help page in the guidebook.
