re: Rust compared to C++

I saw Rust bindings for Openvino here:  https://github.com/intel/openvino-rs

but it does not seem very popular at all.  

I am a computer science university student with some academic background in C++ but heard Microsoft is moving away from C and C++ towards Rust and development of new languages so wondering if trends at Intel at similar.

an article on Microsoft's move to Rust: https://thenewstack.io/microsoft-rust-is-the-industrys-best-chance-at-safe-systems-programming/

I ask because:

1.  I want to be employable, ie. I know Python sort of well but need a high-speed language to complement it.  

2.  My major is computational perception and robotics, where C family languages seem to dominate, but it seems like Rust is here to stay and is only going to get better (with its ecosystem).  

Please post your opinions on the matter.

Hi Nyck33,

Thanks for reaching out to us. openvino-rs contains the openvino-sys crate (low-level, unsafe bindings) and the openvino crate (high-level, ergonomic bindings) for accessing OpenVINO™ functionality in Rust, and it is constantly updated.

 

On another note, you may watch Intel and Rust: the Future of Systems Programming: Josh Triplett to hear about how Intel is working to bring Rust to full parity with C, building the future of systems programming.

 

 

Regards,

Wan
