Large Neural Network Simulations on Multiple Hardware Platforms

  title={Large Neural Network Simulations on Multiple Hardware Platforms},
  author={Per Hammarlund and {\"O}rjan Ekeberg},
  journal={Journal of Computational Neuroscience},
To efficiently simulate very large networks of interconnected neurons, particular consideration has to be given to the computer architecture being used. This article presents techniques for implementing simulators for large neural networks on a number of different computer architectures. The neuronal simulation task and the computer architectures of interest are first characterized, and the potential bottlenecks are highlighted. Then we describe the experience gained from adapting an existing… CONTINUE READING
