Machine Learning for Neuromorphic hardware

Several of us are bringing new Neuromorphic chips along to Capocaccia this year:
- Xylo: a new digital SNN inference chip
- Speck: a single-die event-based vision sensor plus spiking CNN processor

These are integrated into open-source machine learning pipelines based on Python, PyTorch and others, for training and deploying applications down to hardware.

We will give a few hands-on tutorials, and make the hardware available to play with at the workshop. Install the python packages below, and you can either simulate the hardware or deploy your own networks in Capocaccia.
