“Python is the most popular programming language today for machine learning”

This interview is part of a Machine Learning series. We invited Adam Geitgey, Director of Software Engineering at Groupon, to talk about the difference between machine learning and the older artificial intelligence effort and the progress we’ve made so far. JAXenter: How are you involved in machine learning? Adam Geitgey: My professional background is primarily in traditional software development, not machine learning. I’ve worked on scaling large-scale websites, building backend systems, building mobile apps and other things like that. But along the way, I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of using computers to solve problems that weren’t so linear and clear. I was first introduced to the idea of probabilistic programming about 10 years ago in an article by Peter Norvig about how spelling correction works using probability. It was so…
