Accelerated Database Access with Apache Arrow

Jul 24, 2024 | 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM UTC

Apache Arrow is a new technology that standardizes in-memory data representation in a highly efficient, columnar manner. Arrow allows seamless propagation of data through different technologies without the need to copy or transform the data.

This talk will demonstrate Arrow’s rapidly increasing adoption from data scientists, technologies built from Arrow for artificial intelligence and machine learning, and usages in modern databases.

A sub-project is Arrow Database Connectivity (ADBC) which provides a generic API to access multiple data source and is available for several programming languages – C++, C#, Go, Java, Python, R, Ruby, and Rust. ADBC is a client API specification for wrapping existing database protocols.
