R vs. Python for Data Science

by on November 30, 2016

While the elections are over, some debates continue. R and Python are both popular programming languages for data scientists. Each has its advantages for performing data science tasks. So, which one should you use? In this video, Domino’s Chief Data Scientist, Eduardo Ariño de la Rubia, makes a case for each of them as the “best” language for data scientists.

In his presentation, he covers:

  • A brief history of each language, recent advances, and the key players in their respective communities;
  • Popular R and Python packages for data collection, data visualization, and data modeling;
  • The advantages of using R vs. Python for several data science use cases.
