Exaloop develops a high-performance, Python-based, AI-integrated platform for data scientists and engineers. With the Exaloop platform, anyone with basic Python programming experience can write performant, scalable software for a variety of backends and architectures — no more wasting time on low-level optimizations or rewriting code. With Exaloop, your favorite libraries—from NumPy to Pandas—run orders of magnitude faster, can be parallelized to take advantage of multiple cores, and can even run on GPUs.

Exaloop spun out of MIT’s Computer Science and AI Lab in late 2021 by its two founders who shared a vision of democratizing access to scalable, performant computing in the modern era of big data and AI.

At Exaloop, we believe in democratizing performance

The Future of Computing

At Exaloop, we believe in democratizing performance, scalability, and hardware acceleration to everyone, from data scientists & engineers to domain experts in fields like AI, life sciences, finance, and many others. Our mission is to create the technology and platform that makes this possible.
