Julia Computing will use the funding to develop and advance its JuliaHub high-performance cloud platform and to grow the Julia ecosystem. Shah said technical computing is stuck in a rut today.
“Data scientists and engineers use products designed decades ago. JuliaHub makes it possible to design new drugs and therapies, to develop new batteries, to simulate a space mission and to map the universe, while using less computing resources and reducing emissions from data centers ”, he added. he declares.
