2006-11-20 V1 hypercolumn Coordination Meeting, 20th - 21st Nov 2006

Subject: Coordination meeting of the WP9T2 and WP5T3 tasks.

Main points and decisions

  • review / demonstration of coding strategies by different partners. This definition has impact on the "Meta Simulator",
  • review of existing V1 models inside and outside FACETS (see also !Review_of_V1_models),
  • definition of the common benchmark FACETS_Benchmarks to qualitatively compare different models and strategies in order to break the model complexity barrier, as we began to do for the simulator,
  • definition of the architecture of the FACETS model of an "hyper-column" by defining the priorities of different partners: effect of including different neuron types, including layers, specific lateral connectivity.
  • Partner 13 (Plymouth, Mike Denham) will provide an hypercolumn for D25.
  • Partner 6b will provide a retina before Dec. 15 for implementing benchmark zero.

Tuesday, 21 November 2006

morning, 09:00 - 13:00

Overview of V1 models from FACETS: diversity and common strengths

* Mike Denham (UP) : The english model
* Anders Lansner (KTH) : The swedish model

Lunch

afternoon

Planning of Implementation plans * benchmarking the existing
models
    * implementing the FACETS model for D25
    * link between WP9 and WP5 on the track to the "detailed model" of
V1 computing.
    Outcome : to set deadlines and implementation plans. Moderator : G.
Masson
