What would I do with an XMP-64.??????
Given that the question is what would I do with an XMP-64, as is, rather than what would I wish the board to be.....
Hmm I think that it would be very useful (and I am not sure how this could be a demo app at the moment without lots of blinky lights) for modelling Neural Networks on.
Not the usual mathematically intensive models that are a little old hat. But some newer ideas that make use of the distributed memory/processing, event oriented execution and message passing that the XMOS processors are great for.
I would like to take a couple of audio input streams (Stereo mics, left & right). Process them using FFT into two time versus power band multi input streams. Throw it into a large neural network modelled on Biological Neurones and breed a solution using genetic algorithms to give a single time versus power band multi output stream that we reconstitute into a mono audio output to drive a loud speaker.
Why, because it would be fun, could produce some novel results and (highly unlikely) if successful may even pass the turing test.
