What tools do we use most for data science, machine learning, or analytics? Python, R, SAS, KNIME, RapidMiner,…? How do we use them? We are about to find out as the two most popular surveys on data science tools have both just gone live. Please chip in and help us all get a better understanding of the tools of our trade.

For 18 consecutive years, Gregory Piatetsky has been asking people what software they have actually used in the past twelve months on the KDnuggets Poll.  Since this poll contains just one question, it’s very quick to take and you’ll get the latest results immediately. You can take the KDnuggets poll here.

Every other year since 2007 Rexer Analytics has surveyed data science professionals, students, and academics regarding the software they use.  It is a more detailed survey which also asks about goals, algorithms, challenges, and a variety of other factors.  You can take the Rexer Analytics survey here (use Access Code M7UY4).  Summary reports from the seven previous Rexer surveys are FREE and can be downloaded from their Data Science Survey page.

As always, as soon as the results from either survey are available, I’ll post them on this blog, then update the main results in The Popularity of Data Science Software, and finally send out an announcement on Twitter (follow me as @BobMuenchen).
