    Another aspect of writing code for GPUs are the shaders, the code that gets executed in the GPU. These can be written in CUDA C (for CUDA), OpenCL C (for OpenCL), GLSL (if using graphic/compute APIs such as OpenGL), etc. Rust can be used for this purpose too, thanks to rust-gpu, but it is a bit more complex to get started.

    Rust also has this, from what I understand:

    Working on autograph, for machine learning and neural networks. Unlike CUDA / HIP it's threadsafe, but doesn't expose low level things like multiple streams. Most of the shaders are glsl but I'm now using rust_gpu for pure rust gpu code.

    That's a good point. I'm interested in projects like Rust GPU for this sort of thing. Should make it easy enough to actually unit test your shaders.

    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-06-28
    Proposing a function like std::index_32, to improve a performance problem which may or may not exist, on a class of platforms which aren't supported (and on which Rust currently barely compiles), because Rust might become popular on those platforms in the future... you could try it, but I think your proposal would have a very low chance of being accepted. The starting point is here.

    I have used the https://github.com/nbigaouette/onnxruntime-rs ONNX C++ wrapper on a Pytorch model, and did not see any difference in compute time between ONNX Python and ONNX Rust for GPU.
