Is there any foreseeable chance that Golang could become an important player in the DL space? Wondering mainly because performance is one of the main goals of the language and there seem to be some ML libraries already available for Go.
I’m a huge fan of Golang but I don’t think it’s likely to be a big player in DL anytime soon. I think Golang appeals more to people that have a C++ type of background and most DL researchers don’t have that.
If it does make progress it would be nice in terms of performance but we’ll see how much traction it can get.
