What makes you say that? I have just run all of the code as given in
the reference and get results that are in the same ball park for every
test that was run.
It's nonsensical because you are comparing two very different
algorithms, especially when one could well be a million times faster
than the other.
The point of the article was Julia vs. Python. You can't make Python
faster by switching to a faster algorithm; you have to use the same one
