Julia – Dynamic Programming Language for Technical Computing

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/machinelearning/2017/01/31/julia-a-fresh-approach-to-numerical-computing/

The Julia language provides a fresh new approach to numerical computing, where there is no longer a compromise between performance and productivity. A high-level language that makes writing natural mathematical code easy, with runtime speeds approaching raw C, Julia has been used to model economic systems at the Federal Reserve, drive autonomous cars at University of California Berkeley, optimize the power grid, calculate solvency requirements for large insurance firms, model the US mortgage markets and map all the stars in the sky.

It would be no surprise then that Julia is a natural fit in many areas of machine learning. ML, and in particular deep learning, drives some of the most demanding numerical computing applications in use today. And the powers of Julia make it a perfect language to implement these algorithms.
