Modernized User Interface for a Neuromorphic Hardware System


Eric Müller
Future-proof C++ to Python wrapping

The BrainScaleS Wafer-Scale System [0] is an accelerated neurom orphic implementation of neurons and plastic synapses emulating spiking neural networks. The API layers of the BrainScaleS system software stack are wrapped to Python using Boost.Python [2] and a Py++-based (wrapper) code [3] generator. As the underlying methodology relies on an deprecated compiler version (gccxml; based on gcc 4.4) we aim for an updated implementation (e.g. using GenPyBind [4], which is based on Clang and pybind11 [5] (developed in our group)).

Goal: Implement a backwards-compatible Python-wrapper for >=1 of our software layers.

Required Skills: C++ and Python
