A pioneering brain-inspired neuromorphic computing platform

SpiNNaker – a contraction of Spiking Neural Network Architecture – is a massively-parallel brain-inspired neuromorphic computer for large-scale real-time brain modelling applications. It has three aims:

  • to simulate very large brain-like networks, to advance our understanding of how the brain works;
  • as a real-time neural simulator that allows roboticists to design large neural networks, that are both flexible and low power, into mobile robots;
  • to question the restrictions that we impose on our computer architectures, by comparing them to the to the very different principles evolved by nature in the brain.
