Brief review of Array computing in Python, where it is heading, and why it matters
Python has been used to find gravitational waves and image black holes and has become the de facto language for machine learning. In this talk, I describe how this happened through the efforts of cooperative, community-driven open-source and dedicated volunteers. I will then describe how the big-data and deep learning communities have enhanced the landscape of array computing make accessible to Python users incredible computational capability. Finally, I will provide some thoughts and perspective on what may be coming next and what it will enable.
