Python is a most popular general-purpose , high-level programming language which was created in 1991 by Guido van Rossum and developed by Python Software Foundation with the goal of concentrating on the readability of code with its extensive use of white space. Python development team was inspired by the British comedy group Monty Python to make a programming language that was fun to use. Python was named after the BBC show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” as he was a big fan of the TV show.
Used in various purposes such as developing, scripting, generation and software testing, this language is mostly used in the field of Artificial intelligence as it is open source, free, dynamic, portable, easy to code and integrated language (python can be integrated with other language like c, c++ etc.) Python, being cross platform language, can run on various platforms like Linux, Windows, Mac, Raspberry pi etc. Python is much efficient as developers are allowed to write program with fewer lines of code than other programming languages.
Python code is executed line by line at a time so it is also known as interpreted language. Python relies on indentation, using white space, to define scope, whereas Other programming languages often use curly-brackets for this purpose. We can split the program in various modules which can later be used in other programs.
WHY PYTHON IN AI ???
We use Python because Python Programming language can be close to pseudo code which is extremely versatile and popular among developers. Python is called General Purpose language (GPL) because it is used in Machine Learning, GUI development, software development, Data Science and many more. Python is a very human-readable programming language for those with an understanding of English which allows for easy comprehension because Python supports various types of object-oriented programming and objects.
Python is considered as multi-paradigm language that allows programmers to use the most acceptable style to complete a project. Python provides a great deal of promise to those who want to start coding while also being a decent option for those who want to pick up an additional programming language. Learning Python’s core concepts and computer programming can offer you both as user and as a developer to understand how programs function works while also conveying simple reasoning that can support you in other fields.
Python is widely considered as the preferred language for Artificial Intelligence. Python helps developers be productive and confident about the software they’re building from development to deployment and maintenance. Simplicity and consistency, access to great libraries and frameworks for AI and machine learning (ML), flexibility, platform independence, and a wide community are the main reasons of python being used in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Python AI Community has grown gradually across the globe. Scientific Python packages such as Numpy, Scipy, and Matplotlib can be installed in a program running on Python. Apart from Python, matlab & R are also used.
