One of the most common questions heard from aspiring data scientists is which language is best for machine learning. Experts weigh in on the pros and cons, and best use cases, for the most popular languages for ML. In one corner, we have R, the favorite of statisticians. In another corner is Python, the “all-arounder”. And we have a surprise underdog in Clojure, the functional favorite of the JVM. While there are no winners and losers in this discussion, you’ll come away with a clear understanding of the strengths of each language.
