A Quick Introduction to 'daal4py' for Data Scientists


Accelerating scikit-learn with Intel's accelerated Python requires absolutely no code changes, thereby giving us a nearly effortless way to enhance performance. However, scikit-learn is designed for machine learning operations on in-memory homogeneous data. Fortunately, there is good news for extending beyond those limitations: daal4py. Think of it as "scikit-learn meets MPI (Message Passing Interface)" without requiring us to actually program in MPI. We get the benefits of MPI, and our programs get higher performance by utilizing parallelism across multiple nodes of CPUs.
