pyNAVIS: an open-source cross-platform Neuromorphic Auditory VISualizer

pyNAVIS is an open-source cross-platform Python module for analyzing and processing spiking information obtained from neuromorphic auditory sensors. It is primarily focused to be used with a NAS, but can work with any other cochlea sensor.


pyNAVIS is distributed on PyPi and can be installed with pip:

pip install pyNAVIS

For more information, head over to the ReadTheDocs Documentation.
