Three Reasons Python Is The AI Lingua Franca: Six Feet Up CTO Explains in Datanami

Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Six Feet Up CTO and AWS Community Hero, discusses Python’s unique market share in a Datanami article, “Three Reasons Python Is The AI Lingua Franca.” In the article, Calvin outlines why Python should be the most important tool for developers integrating artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). 

Specifically, Calvin highlights Python’s: 

  • Time-to-Market Turnaround: Python’s “batteries included” nature includes most of the modules and parts needed for full usability.
  • Data Visualization: Tools and libraries such as Airflow and Pandas were built for Python and can provide built-in solutions to visualize and utilize large datasets for Big Data needs.
  • Scalability: Python can handle the insanely large amounts of data and users needed for a project of any size. Plus, the Python community provides people — both beginner and seasoned developers — with a wealth of knowledge. 

Calvin also talks about Python’s reputation for being the best language for AI and ML.

“As AI and ML drive more demand for data-centric software development, more developers will be needed in the trade to meet that demand,” writes Calvin. “No matter what language they’ve used before, no matter their level of expertise as a programmer, Python is accessible to them. Python is both a language itself and a bridge between languages.”
