Date and Time: Tuesday 15 February 2022, 15:00-16:00 CET

Cost: Free of charge

Speakers: Benedikt Feldotto (Technische Universität München)

Description: This webinar will present the deployment of the Neurorobotics Platform (NRP) on Fenix Research Infrastructure exploiting HPC compute node parallelization for embodied large scale spiking neural network simulations. The webinar will introduce the architecture that builds up on persistent virtual machines as well as requested compute nodes and presents benchmark results showcasing the benefits of a highly distributed simulation setup. You will learn about a browser based Graphical User Interface for managing simulation jobs and see a use case of an embodied million neuron rodent brain simulation running interactively in the NRP.
