Speed-Up Python* Applications & Soar Core Computations

Python* is among the most popular programming languages due to its ease-of-use for cloud-based Web applications and out-of-the-box performance.


It also has a reputation for executing scripts slower than its native equivalents due to its single-threaded nature, which provides language flexibility at the cost of performance.

Intel® Distribution for Python* overcomes this challenge, offering optimized numeric, scientific, and machine learning packages to accelerate Python performance on a wide range of Intel® processors.

Watch to learn how the Intel distribution helps Data Scientists enable high-performance computing in Python and Machine Learning applications, including:

  • An overview of the Python performance packages
  • Methods to speed up Python performance
  • Intel-optimized scikit-learn performance speedups
  • Deep-dives on Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library in Python (PyDAAL)
  • Demos with examples
