Title: Julia: Differentiable Programming and Software 2.0 

Abstract: Slowly, many people are starting to understand the rich possibilities offered by the Julia Programming language. We believe the best is yet to come. In this talk, we will discuss what can be possible for performance, for composability, and for innovation when a computer language design has thought carefully about the interplay between mathematics and the underlying computer.
