For those who run on Matrix.org and wonder why there is no connection:

Matrix announced an emergency maintenance… on Twitter:

Sadly @matrix didn't receive the love it deserves and informs the Fediverse.

Anyway, that's why we have a community. We compensate short coming of each other and together make sure the world becomes a better place!

numpy.org/neps/nep-0018-array-

WIth this it is possible to use other NumPy-like arrays such as Dask and CuPy to use NumPy functions, without changing the code. . However I wonder how would one generalize array creation, since the inputs are simply intergers for functions like (np.ones, np.arange, np.random.random).

I really don't get why some people are so negative on Matrix.
