Using Rust for real-time data processing at Finbox

Submitted Nov 25, 2022

Finbox does credit scoring with Machine Learning (ML) using alternative data. The Finbox team encountered Rust when they tried a simple piece of code with Regex in Rust. The speed and performance achieved with Rust was phenomenal. The team felt that it was worthwhile using Rust for some of the computationally heavy components, especially the ones using regexes extensively, at FinBox.

Now FinBox has two of its components using Rust in production.

In this talk, I will explain the performance gains achieved with running Rust in production. I will also share my team’s learnings with Rust, mainly that “Thou shall not compile regexes in a loop” and more.
