RAPIDS.ai is an open-source suite of libraries that allow you to run your end to end data science and analytics pipelines on GPUs. Learn how with 5 minutes and a few lines of code you can dramatically accelerate your workloads in Python, for free! We'll also show off a less free, distributed BlazingSQL & RAPIDS.ai cluster that can process problems at greater scale. If you ever thought GPUs sound awesome but incredibly difficult to program for you need to check this out. If you know Pandas, SQL, and SK-Learn, you can run BlazingSQL & RAPIDS.ai right now!
