Internet lists about what programming languages are best for A.I. vary. Some include more examples, others fewer. It is obviously a choice made based on subjective markers, but also on current technology trends. Different programming languages have different advantages. Depending on the project you might need faster compiling, or the ability to solve complex A.I. software development issues. You might want dependability, scalability, or safety. Another detail is how many specialists able to use said programming languages are available.
Since A.I. is now taking over the world, with applications in everything from banking, to health, to education, recycling, and beyond, knowing what to choose when you are planning a project is decidedly useful.
Python was not created to handle A.I., but due to its simple syntax, the time spent on actual coding is reduced. It has readable keywords. Where other programming languages use punctuation, it uses English words. Even as a newbie, working with it is a more pleasant experience because everything is clearly defined, and a programmer’s effort is not wasted on memorizing things but actually creating code. So, your engineers can take the time to focus on planning and thinking about the core structure of your application.
It works across the board, from very small scripts to large-scale, enterprise projects, but it has great support for the latter.
Some other great features that have put Python at the top of most used programming languages for A.I. are the number of ready-to-use libraries, object-oriented capabilities, the simplicity of testing, and the ease of integration with other programming languages.
Even more, the libraries work across platforms and there is an interface available for all major commercial databases. The fact that it has dynamic type checking and automated garbage collection adds to the pluses.
Another of the many advantages of using Python is the huge and excellent open-source community always ready to help, and the number of resources available.
One of the most used programming languages in the world can be employed in machine learning systems as well.
The Virtual Machine Technology it benefits from is a great asset because once you write and compile the code it can work on any platform without requiring additional changes. That makes it portable and practical. The saved time this approach offers is an important plus for engineers. In addition, it comes with an automatic memory manager, another time efficiency advantage.
It is user-friendly enough, and on top of that, it offers easy debugging, incredible scalability, and support for enterprise projects. Having the capability to offer improved graphics and thus visualization is an extra point in its favor.
The only disadvantage is that it does not have the computation power of other programming languages and because of this, it is not that fast.
It is great for handling robotic systems, sensor input, and machine learning suites.
This programming language has wonderful advantages, but it is not the most approachable, which puts it in third place on this list.
Its syntax is complex and much harder to learn that the one from the previous two languages discussed. At the same time, it is the fastest one on the list, which makes it great for A.I. where the complex nature of the computations requires power and speed. A characteristic that translates to cost-efficiency.
The number of libraries available is also reduced, making it harder for engineers to use them and transfer them across platforms. If you can’t afford Java’s Virtual Machine technology, it is a good second choice though. Garbage collection is not supported making things even harder for programmers. Large projects take a lot of time to create and are not easy to maintain. Nevertheless, it is used widely enough to be among the top languages to use for A.I.
The best use cases for it are systems that need to move very fast, like search engine optimization and ranking.
There are a number of other programming languages that can be used for A.I. algorithms. They all have their good and bad parts. The three mentioned are more known and there are a greater number of engineers capable of using them to create projects. Yet, it is useful to pay attention to other options that are gaining traction. Some of them are R with its huge support for machine learning, Julia with an abundance of libraries, and Haskell with its very safe environment. All have great potential to become more known and more in demand.
