RAPIDS Blog: A Compilation Pipeline Taking User Defined Functions in Python to CUDA Kernels

Originally published at: RAPIDS Blog: A Compilation Pipeline Taking User Defined Functions in Python to CUDA Kernels | NVIDIA Technical Blog

Numba is the Just-in-time compiler used in RAPIDS cuDF to implement high-performance User-Defined Functions (UDFs) by turning user-supplied Python functions into CUDA kernels – but how does it go from Python code to CUDA kernel? In this post we’ll take a look at Numba’s compilation pipeline. If you enjoy diving into Numba’s internals, check out…
