Publishing Checks Docker Cloud Build Status Python Codecov Status Latest Release Netlify Status


Taichi (太极) is a parallel programming language for high-performance numerical computations. It is embedded in Python, and its just-in-time compiler offloads compute-intensive tasks to multi-core CPUs and massively parallel GPUs.

Advanced features of Taichi include spatially sparse computing, differentiable programming [examples], and quantized computation.

Please check out our SIGGRAPH 2020 course on Taichi basics: YouTube, Bilibili, slides (pdf).
