Mojo🔥Steals the Show
What’s that one thing that has the elegance of Python and flexes a speed like C, C++, or CUDA? It’s supersonic Mojo. Launched initially in May by Modular AI, the programming language was made available for local download last week and has produced remarkable results for developers.
Aydyn Tairov, who goes by the name Mojician in the Mojo community, successfully implemented llama2.py in Mojo, achieving a 20% performance boost compared to Andrej Karpathy's llama2.c (Baby Llama), which was developed in C. This compelling result validates Modular's assertions about Mojo's superior speed compared to Python.
Mojo, often dubbed 'Python++’, aims to eventually become a superset of Python. It already seamlessly integrates with Python, offering a scalable programming model for performance-critical AI systems, including GPUs. It can achieve up to a remarkable 68,000 times the performance of Python, making it ideal for AI workloads.
