What Is NVIDIA RAPIDS?
The RAPIDS suite of software libraries gives you the freedom to execute end-to-end data science and analytics pipelines entirely on GPUs. It relies on NVIDIA® CUDA® primitives for low-level compute optimization, but exposes GPU parallelism and high-bandwidth memory speed through user-friendly Python interfaces.
NVIDIA RAPIDS includes XGBoost, cuDF for Data Frames, cuML for Machine Learning, cuGraph for Graph processing, RMM for memory management, and spatiotemporal operations.
