Is it worth learning machine learning without python?

yes it is. Machine learning is learning concepts. The algorithms for it will be available in any language.

yes you can learn the machine learning without python and go for either Java or MATLAB but unfortunately you will end up your journey with the python because of its rich libraries and community support 👍

Although python is probably the up there with the best, it is easily possible with most other languages, recently I have seen a machine learning ai coded in JavaScript! So yes, you can do it without python

See there is no compulsion for ML with python.In ML you would learn algorithms which is independent of language.Python only act as a catalyst in implementation of those algorithms that's it.

A very good point Aditya, machine learning is only a concept, not a piece of code, python is just implementing the concept into a workable program

Yeah, Matlab is also a good choice for Machine learning, simple, easy and alot of sources available online. You can find a bunch of projects for practice.

Juan Pérez Torralbo R is that too :) you can for example write a blockchain in R

True Boem Shakalaka , I meant that python is more widely used than R in other tasks, f.e. videogames, web development, etc. R is a good option too. 👍

the algorithm is available for the other languages, but python is the best because it has a lot of sciencetific libraries that make it the best for ML

I would say no... because Python is the language of future technologies and with this learned, machine learning will be 100 times more fruitful!

To learn Machine Learning you have to learn statistics and algorithms and which ones use for each situation. After that you can choose a programming language; The two more popular are, as you know, python and R. I chose python because it is a all purpose language too, not only useful in ML or Data.

Ofc it is, machine learning isn't exclusive to Python. Matlab is much better suited for ml if you ask me.

No need for Python, but when you try it, you wouldn't want anything else :D

The community support is better with Py, there are a lot of resources. But, the basic concepts can be learned in many languages.

python is a great language machine learning and AI as it has a variety of tools and is itself a very intelligent language..

Python is probably the most commonly associated language because it skips right to expressing the logic and algorithms. Honestly, you could write machine learning software in C if you wanted. What makes Python appealing is getting the idea expressed quickly.
