RAPIDS – Open GPU-accelerated Data Science
RAPIDS is an initiative driven by NVIDIA to accelerate the complete end-to-end data science ecosystem with GPUs. It consists of several open source projects that expose familiar interfaces making it easy to accelerate the entire data science pipeline- from the ETL and data wrangling to feature engineering, statistical modeling, machine learning, and graph analysis.

Corey J. Nolet
Corey has a passion for understanding the world through the analysis of data. He is a developer on the RAPIDS open source project focused on accelerating machine learning algorithms with GPUs.

Adam Thompson
Adam Thompson is a Senior Solutions Architect at NVIDIA. With a background in signal processing, he has spent his career participating in and leading programs focused on deep learning for RF classification, data compression, high-performance computing, and managing and designing applications targeting large collection frameworks. His research interests include deep learning, high-performance computing, systems engineering, cloud architecture/integration, and statistical signal processing. He holds a Masters degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech and a Bachelors from Clemson University.
