At its core, Arrow was designed for high-performance analytics and supports efficient analytic operations on modern hardware like CPUs and GPUs with lightning-fast data access.

It offers a standardized, language-agnostic specification for representing structured, table-like datasets in-memory.

Here’s a great overview.

To support cross-language development, Arrow currently works with popular languages such as C, Go, Java, JavaScript, Python, R, Ruby, among others. The project also includes a query engine that works with Arrow data called DataFusion that is written in Rust.

Elon Musk has warned us that AI and in particular a digital super intelligent AI might render humanity extinct.

We should therefore proceed very carefully in the development of AI systems. One of the solutions for the AI control problem proposed by Elon Musk, is the integration of AI with the human brain through a brain-computer interface. That is one of the reasons why he founded Neuralink, a company focused on the development of implantable brain–machine interfaces.

Neuralink’s BMI technology might be able to overcome the biological limits of our minds and could even expand our intelligence.The symbiosis between AI and humans, may greatly benefit our species. It may also help humanity to expand out into space. In spite of these possibilities. Musk said that he sees the creation of digital superintelligences as a great risk to the existence of humanity, but he also thinks that we must nevertheless pursue its development.
