Workshop / Overview
We’ll give an introduction to spiking neural networks, and how to design spiking NN architectures. We’ll work through two simple sensory applications in audio and vision processing, and tweak and retrain network architectures in order to reduce power consumption.
We’ll also demonstrate deploying spiking networks on ultra-low-power inference hardware from aiCTX.
Workshop / Outcome
At the end of the workshop, you’ll have learned several spiking neural network design approaches, with hands-on experience building and training these architectures using open-source tools.
You’ll get an introduction to using two open-source packages for spiking neural network design, simulation and training, that you can use to build your own applications.
You’ll take home several worked-through Jupyter notebooks to play with further.
