Kdb+ and Python: embedPy and PyQ
15 Nov 2017
In September, Kx announced a range of initiatives to put machine learning (ML) capabilities at the heart of future technology development. The first library to be released as part of this initiative is embedPy, which exposes powerful Python functionality to q developers. EmbedPy is the mirror image of PyQ, a set of software components that simplify the running of a Python interpreter alongside a kdb+ server, the rights to which Kx has acquired. Developed by Alexander Belopolsky of Enlightenment Research, PyQ covers all Python libraries, with a primary focus on numerical libraries such as NumPy and SciPy.
