The neuromorphic computing systems should be of interest to researchers in multiple fields, including computational neuroscience and machine learning. Platform users will be able to study network implementations of their choice, including simplified versions of brain models developed by use of the EBRAINS Simulation services or generic circuit models based on theoretical work.
The platform also offers industry researchers and technology developers the possibility to experiment with and test applications based on state-of-the-art neuromorphic devices and systems.
Neuromorphic systems can offer higher speed (real-time or accelerated) and lower energy consumption than traditional HPC resources. The accelerated systems are particularly suited for investigation of plasticity and learning, enabling simulation of hours or days of biological time in only seconds or minutes.
