I have a question regarding the differences between delayed and futures. The basics (lazy vs immediate) are clear for me.
Let’s say we would like to read several files into an array and compute something. I structure it into several tasks and trigger the computation. I could trigger the computation using dask delayed, building a task graph.
On the other hand, I could use futures. I would use the same tasks and trigger them with futures.
Tasks depending on results from earlier tasks are connected using their futures so that we don’t copy the data to the main process. Doing it that way, we can build something like a task graph with futures as well (at least to my understanding).
Is there a main difference in the scheduling of the tasks if I either use delayed or futures?
Thank you for your help.
