Julia Programming Language Bridges the Machine-Learning Gap 
Traditional programming languages are either high-level or low-level. High-level languages strip down the details that would slow down developers. Low-level languages require the developer to manage the details. Program at a high level and you can produce code quickly. But that code may not run very quickly. If you need efficient, optimized code, you may be better off writing it in a low-level language. Until recently, developers’ options were “runs fast” or “is easy to code.” You didn’t get to pick both—that was, until something changed a few years ago. Julia is an open-source general programming language that’s well-suited to applied math and computer science problems. Read more about the data-centric programming language from co-creator Viral Shah.
