What is CUDA?
A parallel computing platform and application programming interface model,it enables developers to speed up compute-intensive applications by harnessing the power of GPUs for the parallelizable part of the computation.
CUDA is a tool in the Machine Learning Tools category of a tech stack.
Who uses CUDA?
64 companies reportedly use CUDA in their tech stacks, including trivago, Haptik, and Cruise.
160 developers on StackShare have stated that they use CUDA.
Chainer, CuPy, xmake, Replicate, and Rubbrband are some of the popular tools that integrate with CUDA. Here's a list of all 9 tools that integrate with CUDA.

It is the open, royalty-free standard for cross-platform, parallel programming of diverse processors found in personal computers, servers, mobile devices and embedded platforms. It greatly improves the speed and responsiveness of a wide spectrum of applications in numerous market categories including gaming and entertainment titles, scientific and medical software, professional creative tools, vision processing, and neural network training and inferencing.
It is a cross-language, cross-platform application programming interface for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. The API is typically used to interact with a graphics processing unit, to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering.
TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.
PyTorch is not a Python binding into a monolothic C++ framework. It is built to be deeply integrated into Python. You can use it naturally like you would use numpy / scipy / scikit-learn etc.
scikit-learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and distributed under the 3-Clause BSD license.
