Yep. I agree. It's geared towards scientific programming and the 
devs are well aware of the drawbacks of Python and Matlab.

"Julia features optional typing, multiple dispatch, and good 
performance, achieved using type inference and just-in-time (JIT) 
compilation, implemented using LLVM. It is multi-paradigm, 
combining features of imperative, functional, and object-oriented 
programming. Julia provides ease and expressiveness for 
high-level numerical computing, in the same way as languages such 
as R, MATLAB, and Python, but also supports general programming. 
To achieve this, Julia builds upon the lineage of mathematical 
programming languages, but also borrows much from popular dynamic 
languages, including Lisp, Perl, Python, Lua, and Ruby." [1]
