Python is a leading language with lots of pre-built libraries and frameworks. Julia, a language developed by MIT, is an open-source language that focuses on numerical computing. And of course there’s Lisp, created by modern A.I. ‘s foreparent John McCarthy in 1958.
Companies are starting to build and release their own software packages now, as well as unique programming languages for A.I. applications.
Uber released its own probabilistic programming language, Pyro, which it wrote in Python.
It’s a move that signals likely fragmentation in the future of the A.I. ecosystem, not unlike our current rivalry of OSX vs Android, and earlier Mac vs PC camps.
Businesses will find it increasingly cost-prohibitive and difficult to switch between A.I. frameworks and languages.
