RAPIDS is a collection of open source libraries for running data science pipelines end-to-end on the GPU. Its APIs follow familiar libraries like pandas, Scikit-Learn, NetworkX, SciPy signal, and XGBoost, but utilize optimized NVIDIA® CUDA® primitives and high-bandwidth GPU memory under the hood.
Join us as we explore the library and common use cases including feature engineering and preprocessing sped up by 10x over pandas, and XGBoost sped up 4-7x over CPU. We’ll also cover how RAPIDS interacts with the major deep learning libraries, allowing for on GPU preprocessing and feature engineering for your deep learning workflows.
