Google’s Go language ventures into machine learning

Machine learning developers who want to use Google’s Go language as their development platform have a small but growing number of projects to choose from. Rather than call out to libraries written in other languages, chiefly C/C++, developers can work with machine learning libraries written directly in Go. Existing machine learning libraries in other languages have a far larger culture of users, but there’s clearly an interest in having Go toolkits that take advantage of the language’s conveniences. GoLearn, described as a “batteries included” machine learning library, is one of the most prominent. “Simplicity, paired with customisability, is the goal,” the developers write in their introduction to the project. Some of GoLearn’s interfaces to data handling are implemented in the same manner as scikit-learn, a popular Python machine learning project. Python refugees…
