My talk from PyCon 2014

Happening in 15 minutes! Code samples are here. Slides are embedded below (use slide forward/back buttons for best effect). Or download a PDF of the slides.



Video hopefully will be uploaded after the conference and I’ll repost that too.

Interesting paper that shows a connection between P ≠ NP and quantum behavior. I wonder if that analysis overcomes Gödel’s incompleteness theorem, which says “a system cannot demonstrate its own consistency.”

Two Python speed-up tools I learned of this week. Shame I can’t use these in my production environment. They sound awesome.

Numba

Numba is an just-in-time specializing compiler which compiles annotated Python and NumPy code to LLVM (through decorators). Its goal is to seamlessly integrate with the Python scientific software stack and produce optimized native code, as well as integrate with native foreign languages.

Theano
Theano is a Python library that allows you to define, optimize, and evaluate mathematical expressions involving multi-dimensional arrays efficiently. Theano features: tight integration with NumPy, transparent use of a GPU…
