With the new year, work finally started on getting a Windows 64bit Just-In-Time compiler up and running for DWScript.
The repository on Bitbucket and the mirror on GitHub both already hold first working elements. At the moment unit tests are passing, though with effective JIT for only a smaller subset of features than for the 32 bit JIT.
I recently dusted off an artificial neural network project, now published at https://bitbucket.org/egrange/daneuralnet/. This is a subject I’ve been dabbling on and off since the days of 8 bit CPUs.
The goals of the project are twofold: first experiment with neural networks that would be practical to run and train on current CPUs, and second experiment with JIT compilation of neural networks maths with Delphi.
TensorFlow and Python are cool, but they feel a bit too much like Minecraft, another sandbox of ready-made blocks 😉
Just a quick notice that the DWScript source code has begun a transition to Delphi 10.2.3 up from Delphi XE.
The goal is to target Win32 and Win64 compilers, mobile platforms and Delphi Linux are currently not in the scope.
