The actual programming of the cores should surely be the easy part. Each core probably just simulates a bunch of neuron - a pretty simple element - and all the cores will be running similar - if not identical code.
What is really going to be the challenge is setting up the interconnection and run-time data.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
