Post here for help with installing Nengo, using the GUI, and building your first model.


i went through the nengo Tutorial, and I’m a bit confused with the ‘transform’ parameter in nengo.Connection

At first I thought that it’s a linear transformation, meaning a matrix multiplication between the pre output and the transform matrix.

But in the controlled integrator example:

Connect the Input signal to ensemble A.

# The `transform` argument means "connect real-valued signal "Input" to the
# first of the two input channels of A."
tau = 0.1
nengo.Connection(inp, A, transform=[[tau], [0]], synapse=tau)

I’m not sure what the ‘transform’ does anymore. Could some one please explain?


I am not sure how to start the GUI. I am pretty sure that I have the right software installed. Could someone please tell me how I am supposed do, to begin to use Nengo.
