CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 1 — “Julia is a great tool.” That’s what Nobel Laureate Thomas J. Sargent told 250 engineers, computer scientists, programmers, and data scientists during the third annual JuliaCon held at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Labs. This year’s JuliaCon was the biggest yet, and featured presentations describing how Julia is being used to solve complex problems in areas as diverse as economic modelling, spaceflight, bioinformatics and many others. Professor Sargent went on to say: “We like Julia. We are very excited about Julia because our models are complicated. It’s easy to write the problem down, but it’s hard to solve it – especially if our model is high dimensional. That’s why we need Julia. Figuring out how to solve these problems requires some creativity. The guys who…
