Simit is a new language for more efficient programming

Meant to alleviate the frustration of having to swap between different types of tools and physical models, the new language is called Simit, and it requires only one-tenth as much code as older simulations. Simit will require programmers to describe translations between a graphical depiction of a system as well as its matrix description, but where it speeds things up is the fact that it doesn’t have a need for translating graphics into matrices, etc. It can simply take instructions issued by the language of linear algebra and translate them into graphs, skipping over a very time-consuming step. The language has applications outside simulations, and it’s even planned for it to augment machine learning, data analytics, optimization and robotics in addition to a version of Google’s PageRank algorithm as MIT…
