Getting started

Sinabs Is Not A Brain Simulator

sinabs is a python library for development and implementation of Spiking Convolutional Neural Networks (SCNNs). The library implements several layers that are spiking equivalents of CNN layers. In addition it provides support to import CNN models implemented in torch conveniently to test their spiking equivalent implementation. This project is managed by SynSense (former aiCTX AG).

NOTE: The conversion of CNNs to SCNNs is still a subject of research and we strive to keep the library updated to the state-of-the art in addition to providing options to compare various approaches both at a high level abstraction to low level implementation details.

NOTE: This library is in Beta release stage and is subject to API changes.


You can install sinabs with pip:

pip install sinabs
