Jens E. Pedersen @ ONM – NIR: A Unified Instruction Set for Brain-Inspired Computing

5 February @ 18:00 - 20:00 CET

Have you wondered how to use neuromorphic hardware platforms?

Are you depressed by your power bill after you bought your >400W GPU rig?

Then you came to the right place!

In this workshop, we will show you how to move models from your favourite framework directly to neuromorphic hardware with 1-2 lines of code! We will present the technology behind, the Neuromorphic Intermediate Representation , and demonstrate how we can use it to run a live spiking convnet on the Speck chip.

NIR is currently supported by Intel Loihi , Speck , SpiNNaker2 , Xylo and a host of simulators, including Norse , snnTorch , and Spyx .

Join us on the 5th of February to get your own hands-on experience with NIR and neuromorphic hardware!

All it requires is a computer and a bit of Python knowledge.


  • 18:00 – 19:00: NIR introduction
    • Motivation: coupling neuromorphic hardware and software
    • Demonstrating NIR: from PyTorch to Speck
    • Q&A
  • 19:00 – 20:00: Workshop
    • Hands-on experience with NIR via Jupyter Notebooks or custom models
    • Q&A and collaborative discussions


Note: The event will be hosted virtually. Stay tuned for the video link and further updates.
