    This summer, I was granted the project called scikit-learn-speed, consisting of developing a benchmarking platform for scikit-learn and using it to find potential speedups, and in the end, make the library go faster wherever I can.

    On the official closing day of this work, I’d like to take a ...

    To construct a vbench benchmark you need a setup string and a code string. The constructor’s signature is:

    Benchmark(self, code, setup, ncalls=None, repeat=3, cleanup=None, name=None, description=None, start_date=None, logy=False).

    Why generate benchmarks dynamically?

    For most scikit-learn purposes, the code string will be ...
