PyCOMPSs is a pioneer approach on task-based programming in Python. Based on simple annotations, sequential Python programs can be executed in parallel in HPC-clusters and other distributed infrastructures. Additionally to the traditional directionality clauses that enable the runtime to define the data-dependencies between tasks, PyCOMPSs has been recently extended to support tasks’ resource constraints, tasks’ versions, and multi-threaded and multi-node tasks. The talk will present the PyCOMPSs basics and its recent extensions for cloud-to-edge environments, as well as an overview of dislib, a machine learning library parallelized with PyCOMPSs.
