From Virtual to Real Robotics using SpiNNaker
The workshop / hackathon / codejam will be held at the Kilburn Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, M13 9PL map link.
This event aims to bring together researchers interested in Neurorobotics, using both virtual and real devices, with those interested in SpiNNaker, with the aim of fostering links between the communities, and encouraging ongoing collaboration. By the end of the week, we want to establish SpiNNaker as a platform for neurorobotics and have a plan to remove any barriers to its adoption.
The workshop consists mainly of morning lecture sessions, which will include talks from a number of guest speakers (to be confirmed), and afternoon “hackathon” sessions, where attendees can get together and work on shared projects and tasks. Attendees should have some experience of Python and PyNN (lecture notes from previous workshops are available for review), and a background in C is also recommended. If attendees wish to make progress in integrating their robots with SpiNNaker in advance of the workshop, we will be happy to assist.
