Python eats away at R - Top Software for Analytics, Data Science, Machine Learning in 2018: Trends and Analysis



We tried to include the most popular tools and platforms, while keeping the total number of choices under 90.

The tools are organized in 4 sections, with tools alphabetical in each section.
  • Data Science/Machine Learning platforms,
  • Languages (including R and Python),
  • Hadoop/Spark
  • Deep Learning tools
Data Science, Machine Learning Top Tools Associations, 2017Combining these different types of tools in one poll is somewhat messy, but it allows interesting association analysis afterwards, such as Emerging Ecosystem: Data Science and Machine Learning Software, Analyzed.

This is the 19th such KDnuggets Poll, and several of the past polls suffered from excessive voting from some vendors. It is fine 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 (*).

Whatever other irregular voting we find, will be removed from final results, and we will publish the anonymized voter logs after the poll, so that anyone can analyze them.

We hope our analysis of this poll, trends, and results will useful, as they were in the past.
