- You've probably heard of SpiNNaker in Manchester.
- They've combine 16 arm processors on a chip, and each
processor can simulate up to 2000 neurons (1 ms models) in
- They put 48 chips on a board (that's what I use), and then
wire the boards together. The software permits (theoretically)
2^31 (~2,000,000,000) neurons
all in that 1 ms time step.
- As I understand it, they're putting a 500,000 processor system
together (and it may be running now).
- That's supposed to be accessible over the internet.
- The other platform is the HICANN system from Heidelberg.
- It's analog. It's available over the internet (though I've managed
neither as of yet).
- Both have emulators. The SpiNNaker one was pretty accurate, but
they've changed software since.
- We've got a CABot3 (without STP) on SpiNNaker.
