About Julia

Julia is the simplest, fastest and most powerful numerical computing language available today. Julia combines the functionality of quantitative environments such as Python, R, MATLAB, SAS, SPSS and Stata, with the speed of production programming languages like Java and C++ to solve big data and analytics problems. Julia delivers dramatic improvements in simplicity, speed, capacity, and productivity for data scientists, algorithmic traders, quants, scientists, and engineers who need to solve massive computational problems quickly and accurately.

Julia offers an unbeatable combination of simplicity and productivity with speed that is thousands of times faster than other mathematical, scientific and statistical computing languages.

Partners and users include: Intel, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Lincoln Laboratory (MIT), The Moore Foundation and a number of private sector finance and industry leaders, including several of the world’s leading hedge funds, investment banks, asset managers and insurers.

Julia was co-created by Prof. Alan Edelman (MIT), Dr. Viral Shah (UCSB), Dr. Jeff Bezanson (MIT, Harvard) and Stefan Karpinski (Harvard).

##About Julia Computing

Julia Computing was founded in 2013 to develop products around Julia such as Julia for Finance, which enables financial service companies to leverage the 1,000x improvement in speed and productivity that Julia provides for trading, risk analytics, asset management, macroeconomic modeling and other areas. Products of Julia Computing make Julia easy to develop, easy to deploy and easy to scale. The co-founders of Julia Computing include the four co-authors of the Julia computing language plus Deepak Vinchhi (IIT-Mumbai) and Keno Fischer (Harvard).
