Spiking Implementations of Deep Neural Networks

Siegert-based LIF Training


Paper: DBNs, Multimodal Fusion, Training Deep LIF Networks

Run example.m to train a sample small neural network with LIF neurons and watch it spike, classify, and generate.

High-Accuracy Conversion from ANN to SNN


Paper: High Accuracy Conversion with ReLUs

Train a typical NN to 98% accuracy, then convert it into a spiking neuron and watch how fast it can classify. Really recent work, and currently has the state-of-the-art accuracy for spiking implementations.
