Why use NumPy?

Numpy stands for Numerical Python. It is an open source core Python Library for scientific computations. It is a general-purpose array.

  • It can be used in the industry for array computing. It is multi-dimensional arrays which can be implemented in all the numerical tasks. 
  • Python is slower as compared to other languages to perform looping. Therefore, we can use NumPy that convert monotonous code into the compiled form.
  • In Python, lists that serve the purpose of arrays, but they are slow to process. Numpy Array provide an array object that is up to 50x faster than Python Lists.
