>While a very expressive and extendable language like Python seems well suited to researching the desired abstractions when designing neural nets and ML paradigms, it seems to me that a production phase would benefit from translating it to a 'sleek' language like Go

Without generics (which Go will sorta get) and perhaps operator overloading (which will probably wont), slim chances...

But even more so, Python is not the performance bottleneck, as the libs are all optimized C, Fortran, etc. Not to mention Go has historically been even slower than Python's (C libs) in things like strings, regex, JSON etc.
