data science, astrophysics, biostatistics, cheminformatics, and many others. It doesn’t stop there: computational finance uses the same libraries, languages and tools. Current languages: Python, R, Julia.
evaluate any language’s feasibility for a problem: Does the language provide the right semantic constructs to model your problem and its possible solution(s)? Does the language have a decent ecosystem to help you solve your problem?
scientific models using Express. Math on the client, for rendering more powerful WebGL scenes, or interfacing with Famo.us. NaCL – running complicated models in the browser. Cylon.js – running scientific models on Raspberry Pis, Parrot Drones and more. Tessel.io – sharing intelligent neural nets across servers and microcontrollers to make automation more intelligent.
