  • Why is Python popular despite being accused of being slow?
    Not everyone has the same "parallelism" needs. I have used mpi4py to distribute scientific computations using numpy over thousands of cores on hundreds of servers with much less effort than doing the same thing in C / C++ and almost no performance penalty (I could batch my data in big enough chunks). Today there are higher level distributed computing packages like dask that are even easier to use.
  • Too much data to preprocess to work with pandas — is pyspark.sql a feasible alternative? | 2021-02-25
    I haven't used it myself I have to admit, but I think dask could fit your workflow. Spark might add a little bit too much overhead if you're not used to it and you're not using a distributed system but of course it would also work.
  • [D] Jax (or other libraries) when not using GPUs/TPUs but CPUs.
