Researchers at Brown University and MIT have developed a new data science framework that allows users to process data in the Python programming language. Generally, you do not have to pay the “performance tax” associated with user-friendly languages.
A new framework called Tuplex allows you to: Process data Queries written in Python are up to 90 times faster than industry standard data systems such as Apache Spark and Dask. The research team unveiled the system in a study presented at the premier data processing conference, SIGMOD 2021, making the software freely available to everyone.
“Python is the leading programming language used by data science practitioners,” said Malte Schwarzkopf, an assistant professor of computer science at Brown and one of the developers at Tuplex. “It makes a lot of sense. Python is widely taught in college and is an easy language to get started with. But when
