Like 2017 I will participate in this years GNU Hackers Meeting.

I plan to do a short talk about a project that I contribute to:
It is called Libre-SOCĀ and it is extending GNU Binutils[1] to
support SVP64, a Cray-style Instruction Vectorisation for IBM's
well known POWER ISA. None of the AMD GPUs that most Talos II usersĀ 
own is FSF-certified to Respect Your Freedom[2], most of them need
non-free binary blobs. The hybrid CPU, VPU and GPU[3] developed by 
the Libre-SOC project has the potential to change that.
