Jim Pivarski (Princeton University)
  • Awkward Arrays describe rich datatype-manipulation in a vectorized way, like NumPy.
  • Dask delays and distributes array computations.
  • Dask-Awkward introduces an Awkward Array-based collection type to Dask, so that Awkward Array calculations can now be delayed (to examine the DAG) and distributed (for parallel processing).

A first demo of Dask-Awkward was shown at this meeting.
