abstract

Our understanding of the human brain and its tremendously
energy-efficient information processing is still quite incomplete. One
reason is the immense complexity of the brain, making it difficult to
understand and simulate. The latter difficulty is tackled by the
SpiNNaker2 system, aimed for simulating brain-size spiking neural
networks in real-time. This talk gives some insight into the design of
the system and shows how it combines biological inspiration with
cutting-edge chip design. Design and abstraction methods for handling
the complexity of a 144 core multi-processor chip are introduced as
well. The resulting SpiNNaker2 system will be a flexible, yet
energy-efficient platform for testing models of neuro-inspired
information processing in real-time, as well as other applications for
embedded, real-time processing.
