All Videos regarding NEST

NEST::documented

How do nerve cells communicate? How do they store memories? Computer simulations help scientists to better understand the complex processes that take place in the brain. The simulation software NEST allows them to investigate how thousands of nerve cells interact -- and, thus, to get closer to deciphering the secrets of the brain.

Federal President Joachim Gauck and SpiNNaker

On his visit, Federal President Joachim Gauck gets informed about the future of neuromorphic hardware SpiNNaker (Short for Spiking Neural Network Architecture). Together with our partners in Manchester the INM-6 / IAS-6 developed a hardware which is able to to simulate the behaviour of aggregates of up to a billion neurons in real time. By doing this, SpiNNaker is highly efficient and a powerful million-core computing engine.

HBP HPAC Platform Release: NEST-SpiNNaker-Elephant - Demo

This demo was shown as part of the release of the Human Brain Project's (HBP) High Performance Analytics & Computing Platform (HPAC) on 30th March 2016.
It demonstrates how the HPAC Platform can be used to run brain simulations with NEST on supercomputer JUQUEEN and using SpiNNaker.

Nahaufnahme Wissenschaft


Prof. Markus Diesmann leitet das Institut für Neurowissenschaften und Medizin - Computational and Systems Neuroscience (INM-6) am Forschungszentrum Jülich. Dieser Bereich entwickelt mathematische Modelle für Nervenzellen und Netzwerke von Nervenzellen. Das bessere Verständnis der Funktionsweise des Gehirns ist die Voraussetzung dafür, Hirnerkrankungen genauer diagnostizieren und besser behandeln zu können. Aber nicht nur das: Wenn es gelänge, die Mechanismen der Datenverarbeitung der grauen Zellen auf Computersysteme zu übertragen, könnten sehr viel leistungsstärkere Rechner gebaut werden - bei vergleichsweise minimalem Energieverbrauch.

The future of computing - Inspired by the Human Brain (Jülich and IBM)

Forschungszentrum Jülich is a leading provider of supercomputing resources and they joined the OpenPOWER Foundation in April 2014 to broaden the scope of available Supercomputing solutions and products. Watch this short video to see how Forschungszentrum Jülich and IBM jointly explore future technologies for energy efficient computing.

Hidden connections - Data analysis in brain and supermarket

Neuroscientist Sonja Grün uses methods from retailing market research to understand how neurons cooperate.The statistical method known as "frequent itemset mining" (FIM) finds groups of objects in large volumes of data quickly and efficiently and counts their frequencies. In retailing market research, this is used, for example, to identify products that are often purchased together. In brain research, a modified version of the FIM method helps to distinguish behaviour-dependent activity patterns from random patterns.
