Why is python so widely used in AI when it’s a really inefficient language under the hood? Wouldn’t Rust be better to optimize models? Or do you just need that optimization at the infrastructure level while the models are so high level it doesn’t matter?

Also it’s really cool there’s people in the forefront of AI on this sub. I’m at a big tech company right now, and I want to transfer into infrastructure for AI there. Then hopefully, I’ll build a resume to get into a top PhD program. After that I could work in AI research.
