Loihi in Nengo GUI


#1

Hi, how can Loihi backend be inserted in the Nengo GUI interface?
Thanks

I believe running nengo --backend=nengo_loihi should work. To my understanding, if you have the NxSDK installed, it should run on the loihi chip. Otherwise it will run on the loihi simulator.

Edit:
Also, I don’t think it’s built to work with SCRUM in the GUI (at the moment), I think for now you can only use the loihi chip outside the GUI. So if you’re on the Intel servers this might be the only way to go for the time being. The ABR folks probably can shed more light on this, but this is my current understanding.

Thank you, but unfortunately it doesn´t work. I would like to have something similar to this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIsK7dSXBo0&index=24&t=0s&list=LLeCKOp-ccDDBs1OxXHrG8cQ
But i didn´t find any example where the block Loihi is used in GUI

This feature is still under development. You can track the progress of it here: https://github.com/nengo/nengo-loihi/pull/28. For now, though, you’ll have to stick with Python files or Jupyter Notebooks for running nengo_loihi code.
