Engineers at Google have unveiled Dex, a prototype functional language designed for array processing. Array processing is a cornerstone of the math used in machine learning applications and other computationally intensive work.

The chief goal for the Dex language, according to a paper released by Google researchers, is to allow programmers to work efficiently and concisely with arrays using a compact, functional syntax.
