OpenAI released their newest language, Triton. This open-source programming language that enables researchers to write highly efficient GPU code for AI workloads is Python-compatible and allows new users to achieve expert-quality results in only 25 lines of code.

Triton uses Python as its base. The developer writes code in Python using Triton’s libraries, which are then JIT-compiled to run on the GPU. This allows integration with the rest of the Python ecosystem, currently the biggest destination for developing machine-learning solutions.
