In this session, you will discover how Intel® Distribution for Python* delivers high performance Python that is highly optimized for Intel® architecture and aims to drive Python performance closer to native code speeds. Learn how to use the Intel Distribution for Python as a first step towards faster Python applications, followed by Intel VTune Amplifier for a deeper analysis on the performance. You will also see how you can use this distribution with Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library for faster machine learning.
1) Software optimization with Intel Parallel Studio XE and its components
2) Intel Distribution of Python – Intel Python on Xeon – for out of the box performance
3) Data Analytics Accelerator Library
4) Vtune and performance profiling for algorithms
5) Intel optimized frameworks

* Intel Distribution for Python supports Python 2.7 & latest 3.6 version. It is available as part of Intel® Parallel Studio XE, and also as a free standalone version.
