Abstract:

Achieving High-Performance Computing with the Intel® Distribution for Python* – Python has had a reputation for being “slow” or “not performant” for many years, but a new set of technologies and methods have changed that perception to show that Python can be both high-productivity and high-performance at the same time. Learn more about the work Intel is doing to accelerate workloads in the space, and the methods that are used speed up popular packages such as NumPy, SciPy, and Scikit-learn.
