Swift or Julia for TensorFlow


Very interesting proposal on selecting Programming language for Tensorflow by Google team. Swift or Julia for TensorFlow

One of their project goals is partially achieved by Julia now,
Debuggability and Introspection: An important part of R&D is figuring out what is happening in a model, diagnosing failures, and figuring out what to change. A system that diagnoses more errors earlier (e.g. shape mismatches at compile time) is more usable than one that only catches them at run time.


The page you are referring to is titled “Why Swift for TensorFlow?”. The way you link it suggests that it is about Julia vs Swift, but in fact there is only one mention of Julia, among other languages.

I don’t think this belongs in First steps. And it is unclear what the proposal is.
