we are doing OpenPOWER, it is in some ways a better foundation for a
hybrid VPU-CPU-GPU, for example you may remember the Cell Processor,
used in the Sony PS3?

just to be clear, we are not doing RISC-V.

ok so this very much depends on your level of expertise and interests.
it is a huge project so there is lots to do.

for example if you can do c and c++ and are interested in compilers,
Veera could likely use some help with the 3D MESA Vulkan driver.

if you would like to do HDL but actually more python then there is
actually a rather nice high strategic value python project that we
need done.

the actual work needed should be quite small, but explaining it fully
takes about an hour, and the unit tests will be waaay larger than the
amount of "implementation" code:

if that's not intriguing there are plenty more
