Rho: High Performance R

Sign in to queue

Description

The Rho project (formerly known as CXXR) is working on transforming the current R interpreter into a high performance virtual machine for R. Using modern software engineering techniques and the research done on VMs for dynamic and array languages over the last twenty years, we are targeting a factor of ten speed improvement or better for most types of R code, while retaining full compatibility.

This talk will discuss the current compatibility and performance of the VM, the types of tasks it currently does well and outline the project's roadmap for the next year.
