Accelerated ML at the edge with mainline

As of today, it is impossible to make use of ML accelerators with a fully open stack on mainline, on embedded-grade hardware.

This talk presents the status of an effort to write a fully open and upstream stack for inference on VeriSilicon NPUs, found in SoCs from Amlogic, Rockchip, NXP and more.

Additionally, a path for upstreaming drivers for other accelerator hardware will be proposed.
