Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms, and systems to extract knowledge and insights from many structural and unstructured data. There are a lot of tools and programming languages that can be used for Data Science. There’s always a debate on “Is R better than Python?” however, only you can decide what works best.
At the moment, Python is widely used for Data Science as it offers some powerful libraries that are easy-to-use and effective.

Let’s quickly review some popular Python libraries for Data Science.
TensorFlow is an open-source library used to create large-scale neural networks. It also provides tools and libraries to build and deploy Machine Learning powered applications.
Numerical Python (NumPy) is the core library for scientific computing in Python. It is one of the most popular libraries used for array computing.
SciPy is another open-source python library used for scientific computing and technical computing. It is a part of the NumPy stack and is one of the major libraries in the SciPy stack.
pandas is a fast and powerful library for data manipulation and analysis. It is the most widely used tool for data wrangling.
scikit-learn is a free Machine Learning Python library. It is mainly used for Machine Learning and Statistical Modelling. It is widely used and is considered as one of the robust libraries in Python.
Keras is an open-source neural network library. It is a powerful deep learning API mainly used for developing Deep Learning models.
Matplotlib is a plotting library used for creating static, animated, and interactive visualizations.
