Milk — MIT’s New Programming Language That Makes Code Run 4 Time Faster

Short Bytes: A group of MIT researchers has developed a new programming language named Milk. It makes the code operating on big data sets about 4 times faster. This is done by an intelligent sorting and collection of data addresses. Later this week, more research details will be presented at the International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques. Today’s big data sets pose different types of problems for current memory management techniques that are based on the principle of locality. This principle states that if a particular program has to access some data at a memory location, it also needs the nearby memory lumps. When a program deals with big data, which act on tons of data items spread here and there, this principle of locality acts as a performance killer…
