  • Multithreading is a technique wherein several threads are generated by a process to do separate tasks, simultaneously, just consecutively. This gives you the idea that the threads are running in parallel, however they are actually running in a side by side manner. The Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) in Python programming language intercepts the threads from running simultaneously.
  • Multiprocessing is a technique wherein parallelism is achieved. Multiple processes are running simultaneously across multiple CPU, that do not share the resources among them. Each process can have many threads. These threads run in their own memory space.
