A Singularity Event for Scientific Computing

On scientific computing going ‘stale’ and needing a singularity event. Julia is what can inject new life here…
Could we invite John Etgen to JuliaCon?

I share some of the general sentiment (I really do and would guess many Julia users do) but he goes too far with the AI comparison IMO. In some sense AI is just a much easier problem to begin with. In other areas it’s just much harder to find and define good levels of abstraction. Of course, we should still try.

As for inviting him to JuliaCon, we already have selected some keynote speakers. So would have to wait for next year.

Thankyou for the reply @carstenbauer Maybe next year then!
Sorry that my enthusiasm got the better of me.

No need to be sorry. :slight_smile:
