    Not sure if you consider Futhark or Dex to be array languages, but both are written in haskell. Dex compiles to llvm.

    Good luck parsing Dex to distinguish from confusion with Decentralized Exchanges (DEX). | 2021-06-10
    So now we are seeing ML research tools like Dex, a Haskell-based research language developed to have support provided by the features of a functional language.

    Not that it has bindings to other tools, but it sounds like Dex[1] would be relevant to your interests!

    When I've interacted with this kind of thing before -- for example the PyTorch JIT (which I believe also parses an AST to produce an IR? Is this the same parser/IR as fx or different?), the JAX JIT, or something like Zygote in Julia -- I've always hit these kinds of issues. I think the fundamental problem is choosing to parse an AST for something inherently more flexible, rather than building a graph-based DSL a la TensorFlow v1 (despite its flaws), or though I've not tried it, maybe building something like dex.
  • [News] Swift for TensorFlow Final Report
    Glad it's dead, it was a failure from the moment Swift was selected because it was Chris Lattner's pet project. Dex is an experimental project from Google that is a lot more promising:
  • A comparison of Futhark and Dex
    You may well be right. It's possible I was deceived by Dex declaring types using the same binding constructs as terms, but that might just be a semi-syntactic trick. It does look like a parameter of term-level type (n) is being promoted to the type level, though.
