Jacob Tomlinson is a senior Python software engineer at NVIDIA with a focus on deployment tooling for distributed systems. His work involves maintaining open source projects including RAPIDS and Dask.
RAPIDS is a suite of GPU accelerated open-source Python tools that mimic APIs from the PyData stack including those of Numpy, Pandas and SciKit-Learn.
Dask provides advanced parallelism for analytics with out-of-core computation, lazy evaluation and distributed execution of the PyData stack.
He also tinkers with the open-source chatbot automation framework Opsdroid in his spare time. Jacob volunteers with the local tech community group Tech Exeter and lives in Exeter, UK.
