Deep spiking neural networks are one of the promising eventbased sensor signal processing concepts. However, the practical application of such networks is difficult with standard deep neural network training packages. In this paper, we propose a vector-matrix description of a spike neural network that allows us to adapt the traditional backpropagation algorithm for signals represented as spike time sequences. We represent spike sequences as binary vectors. This enables us to derive expressions

The capabilities of the proposed vector-matrix model are demonstrated on the problem of handwritten digit recognition on the MNIST data set. The classification accuracy on test data for spiking neural network with 3 hidden layers is equal to 98.14%.
