This is a question we received outside of the forum and I’ve taken the liberty of copying it here for posterity:
As the nengo-loihi example suite now includes an LMU example, I’d like to transition development to a cloud environment supporting this example. I see references to an “Intel cloud server” possessing the Loihi backend but could not find the documentation on gaining access to it. In any event, it appears Voelker is moving the LMU code to TensorFlow 2.0, which is a step in the right direction. This brings the LMU experiments closer to easy demonstration on high performance hardware via Chrome’s “Open in Colab” extension.
Unfortunately, access to physical Loihi devices is not available from us. For access to Loihi you will need to contact Intel directly and inquire about their Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (INRC).
That being said, if you are not specifically interested in a spiking implementation of the LMU, you should be able to run the LMU code on any server if not using spikes. In addition, you should still be able to run the example in Colab using the Loihi emulator that’s part of
