carp-lang/Carp programming language
Carp is a small programming language designed to work well for interactive and performance sensitive use cases like games, sound synthesis and visualizations.

The key features of Carp are the following:

Automatic and deterministic memory management (no garbage collector or VM)
Inferred static types for great speed and reliability
Ownership tracking enables a functional programming style while still using mutation of cache-friendly data structures under the hood
No hidden performance penalties – allocation and copying are explicit
Straightforward integration with existing C code

An Introduction to Hashing in the Era of Machine Learning
Bradfield blog updates on machine learning as applied to hashing (work by Google+MIT). Intro-level description of hashing, high-level description of machine learning, then an overview of the work and the results.

TLDR; machine learning models may help optimize larger indexes (like Google's BigTable) but a simpler algorithm (Cuckoo hashing) that can adapt to changes can be very efficient.

quote; "algorithms like cuckoo hashing remind us that machine learning is not a panacea"
