Artificial Intelligence and Data

What is so good about Rust?

#[test]
fn test_distribs() {
let n = log_normal(0.0, 0.5, 1.0);
println!("Sample {}.", n);
assert!((n - 0.7978846).abs() < 0.001);
let p = normal(0.0, 1.0, 0.0);
println!("Sample {}.", p);
assert!((p - 0.3989).abs() < 0.001);
}
cargo test

So what is bad?

#[inline(always)]
pub fn err(&mut self, msg: &'static str) -> St {
self.err = Some(types::CodecError { upto: self.pos, cause: msg.into_maybe_owned() });
Default::default()
}
impl $dec {
pub fn new() -> Box { box $dec { st: $stmod::$inist } as Box }
}

Simulators and supercomputers

In conclusion…
