NVIDIA Announces "RAPIDS" Open-Source Data Analytics / Machine Learning Platform
NVIDIA RAPIDS is an open-source data analytics and machine learning platform. RAPIDS is intended as an end-to-end solution for data science training pipelines on graphics processors. NVIDIA announced RAPIDS from their GTC Europe 2018 conference happening this week in Munich.
NVIDIA claims that RAPIDS can allow for machine learning training at up to 50x and is built atop CUDA for GPU acceleration. The libraries are written in Python. RAPIDS is built atop the Apache Arrow project.
Still digging through the announcement that just went live, but for those interested can head on over to RAPIDS.ai. The code is being uploaded to GitHub.
