C to Pascal

Postby Gavinmc42 » Sat Apr 14, 2018 4:42 am

Found this, so sticking it here so I can find it again.

ARM's Compute code is in C and can use the ARM's NEON's stuff
On top is things like this
https://developer.arm.com/products/proc ... ing/arm-nn

We could just link to the C library, but rewriting it to Pascal means I might learn and understand it better ;)
I have forgotten a lot of highschool/Uni maths :oops:

A recent interview with Eben Upton asking what he would like in future Pi's Machine Learning was one thing he wants.
https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/eben-q-a-1/

We have NEON in the Pi's, we don't have Mali( but maybe OpenCL on VC4/5/6?) and Eben may give us ML accelerators.
He also said Pi's will be a big part of IoT, which most of us here and using Ultibo may have guessed already ;)
64bit Raspbian - "not yet"

My impression was RPT is still pretty small and the effort would be a bit big.
But as RPT grows more engineering resource can be allocated to this.
Or Linux will just upstream the Pi3's :D

Gentoo Aarch64 seems to run ok, will see if Ultibo ports to it?
Native Aarch64/NEON with 64bit Laz/FPC perhaps? :P
