Taichi (太极) is a programming language designed for high-performance computer graphics. It is deeply 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 and differentiable programming [examples].

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