[GAP8] Port micropython to a low power MCU plus 8 core neural net hardware accelerator?

I stumbled across this new chip:
https://greenwaves-technologies.com/en/developer-kits/
https://greenwaves-technologies.com/en/gap8-blog/
name GAP8 +
package aQFN +
power dissipation 0.06 W (60 mW, 8.046e-5 hp, 6.0e-5 kW) +
process 55 nm (0.055 μm, 5.5e-5 mm) +
release price $ 5.00 (€ 4.50, £ 4.05, ¥ 516.65) +
technology CMOS +
thread count 9 +
word size 32 bit (4 octets, 8 nibbles) +

with libraries for conv neural net computing, and wonder if it sounds interesting to the core devs
to port micropython to it?
