DANA, Distributed (Asynchronous) Adaptive Numerical Computing Framework
DANA is a python computing framework based on numpy and scipy libraries whose primary goals relate to computational neuroscience and artificial neural networks. However, this framework can be used in several different areas like physic simulations, cellular automata or image processing. The computational paradigm supporting the dana framework is grounded on the notion of a unit that is a set of arbitrary values that can vary along time under the influence of other units and learning. Each unit can be linked to any other unit (including itself) using a weighted connection and a group is a structured set of such homogeneous units.
