Vote in KDnuggets 17th Annual Poll: What software you used for Analytics, Data Mining, Data Science Machine Learning projects in the past 12 months? We will clean and analyze the results and publish our analysis afterwards.
Here are the poll results: R, Python Duel As Top Analytics, Data Science software
One of the most popular KDnuggets features is our annual Analytics, Data Mining, Data Science software poll - please vote below!
The landscape of data science is rapidly changing, with many new tools appearing (and some old ones disappearing). We cannot include all the tools, but tried to include the most popular tools and keep the number of choices below 100. The tools are organized in 4 sections, with entries alphabetical in each section.
- Data Analysis and Data Science platforms,
- Languages (including R and Python),
- Deep Learning tools,
- Big Data Tools (Hadoop/Spark/etc).
Since we wanted to include languages like Python and Java and tools like Excel and SQL which are not exclusively Data Science tools, we changed the poll question to
What software you used for Analytics, Data Mining, Data Science, Machine Learning projects in the past 12 months?
This is the 17th such KDnuggets Poll, and it usually attracts a lot of attention and sometimes controversy due to excessive voting by some vendors. It is fine to for vendors to ask their users to vote, but it is not OK to set up bot voting or direct link to vote for just one tool.
To reduce excessive and bot voting, this poll asks for an email verification.
We hope our analysis of this poll, trends, and results will useful, as they were in the past.
