HPC_PodcastIn this HPC Podcast, Don Kinhorn and Chris Stevens from Puget Systems discuss the boom in FPGAs at SC15 as well as Intel’s announcement that the company is going to maintain a build of Python.

“Yes, Intel is doing their own Python build! It is still in beta but I think it’s a great idea. Python is a pretty important programming language. It has a large and growing number of useful libraries for mathematical/scientific computing and machine learning, NumPy, SciPy, pandas, Scikit-learn, PySpark, theano, …etc… Python is often used as a frontend or “glue code” language so most important API’s get a nice Python interface at some point. You can find Python modules for just about everything. Yeah, it’s important!”
