MapD & RAPIDS suite of software libraries


Hi ,

Please let us know if you have any plan for this integration or any article you wrote about RAPIDS suite of software libraries.


Hi @sumit -

Yes, we will have a more in-depth blog post about RAPIDS with OmniSci, but from an end-user perspective right now, there isn’t much difference between the former GOAI functionality with the GPU dataframe. OmniSci still provides the functionality through pymapd to get a GPU dataframe (select_ipc_gpu), which is the same underlying library as GOAI (pygdf).

As RAPIDS matures, more tools will become available in the overall GPU analytics ecosystem, but as I understand it the GPU dataframe data structure will remain the same.
