The Issue 26 of Intel Parallel Universe Magazine has a number of interesting materials.
Intel Python team heard your feedback to provide more detailed use case how various technologies being shipped within Intel(R) Distribution for Python* can be applied to accelerate numerical and machine learning applications. Together with experts from Intel(R) Data Analytics Acceleration Library and Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier teams we created a detailed case study showing how to accelerate one of typical machine learning problems, the Recommendation System. In our step-by-step study we illustrate the value of these technologies and give general recommendations how to get speeds near to native code performance. Read the article Overcome Python* Performance Barriers for Machine Learning.
I also recommend reading materials from Intel MKL and DAAL library experts,Unleash the Power of Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning, Lightning-Fast R* Machine Learning Algorithms, A Performance Library for Data Analytics and Machine Learning, and MeritData Speeds Up Its Tempo* Big Data Platform Using Intel® High-Performance Libraries to get hands-on experience with machine learning capabilities of these products.
