Julia is probably best known for its speed as compared to its 'rivals', Matlab, R and Python. By seeking to answer a seemingly extremely simple question, Malcolm Sherrington will discuss where the speed comes from and also delve into some of the features of Julia which really set it apart. Also he will discuss to what extent attempts to speed up other languages can succeed, mapping out the trends which will dictate the shape of computing to come in the nearer future.
