Python is the Growing Platform for Applied Machine Learning

You should pick the right tool for the job.

The specific predictive modeling problem that you are working on should dictate the specific programming language, libraries and even machine learning algorithms to use.

But, what if you are just getting started and looking for a platform to learn and practice machine learning?

In this post, you will discover that Python is the growing platform for applied machine learning, likely to outpace and topple R in terms of adoption and perhaps capability.

After reading this post you will know:

  • That search volume for Python machine learning is growing fast and has already outpaced R.
  • That the percentage of Python machine learning jobs is growing and has already outpaced R.
  • That Python is used by nearly 50% of polled practitioners and growing.

Let’s get started.
