SpiNNaker 2-Workshop on 06.12. and 07.12.2023

SpiNNcloud Systems and the GWDG invite you to a workshop on the hardware platform SpiNNaker 2. Are you working in the fields of theoretical neuroscience, machine learning, robotics or image and signal processing? Would you like to develop new software and find new ways to apply your research? Then don’t miss this unique opportunity to get involved with SpiNNaker!

The GWDG is pleased to announce the acquisition of a SpiNNaker 2 system, which will be integrated as part of the KISSKI Center for Artificial Intelligence. The new hardware is an ideal platform for brain simulations, but also for machine learning, signal processing and robotics.

Together with the developers of SpiNNaker, SpiNNcloud Systems, you will have the opportunity to get to know the platform, try out the system with a test board and ask questions about the hardware and how you can combine it with your research.

The workshop will take place in the Data Center of the GWDG in Göttingen in a hybrid format, with a limited number of in-person seats. After the workshop we will look into providing further access to testing hardware, until the final installation of a SpiNNaker machine in Göttingen.

  • SpiNNaker hardware: 1 Million ARM cores, fast, highly integrated, novel architecture
  • Suited for simulation of neurons/brains, machine learning, robotics, signal processing, complex network behaviors
  • Workshop: Hands-on learning directly with the developers
  • Get on the ground floor of a new system at the GWDG!

When: December 6th (13:00-17:00) and 7th (09:00-12:00), 2023
Where: Data Center Göttingen, Burckhardtweg 4, 37077 Göttingen / Hybrid
