Big data analytics solution developers no longer need to choose between performance and agility.
This article introduces Vector API to Java* developers. It shows how to start using the API in Java programs, and provides examples of vector algorithms. It provides step-by-step details on how to build the Vector API and build Java applications using it. It provides the location for downloadable binaries for Project Panama binaries.
Intel® contributes significantly to both software and hardware optimizations for Java*.
In interpreted languages, it just takes longer to get stuff done - I earlier gave the example where the Python source code a = b + c would result in a BINARY_ADD byte code which takes 78 machine instructions to do the add, but it's a single native ADD instruction if run in compiled language like C or C++. How can we speed this up? Or as the performance expert would say, how do I decrease...
