Abstract/Description

If you know the Python programming language, there’s a good chance you also know there is a rich collection of libraries and tools related to Machine Learning commonly used to apply Python to AI endeavors. Python is known to be simple to learn, with uncomplicated syntax, yet includes powerful constructs. But it’s slow.

The Mojo programming language built by Chris Lattner of Modular has the objective of giving Python the speed of C++ and the safety of Rust while also retaining the ability to use AI-related libraries. Chris wrote LLVM and SWIFT’s compile time optimizations. That is what should make Mojo of interest to Pythonistas.
