I have attended the "AI Crash Course – Adding ML to Your Software Projects in an Hour" and the presenter was using JS/Node for the demo. Although I know there is lots of fuzz around Python when talking about AI, ML, Data Science and BI.

Which one do you recommend? Which one is more mature, has more community involved and more examples/tutorials to start my ML path?

I am equally comfortable both with Python and JS.

Hi there!

I can say that no language is good or bad, both have their own unique features. Both JavaScript and Python will assure reliable, consistent, and effective results by implementing an accurate coding approach. You can use the one as per your project requirements.

Thank you,

I think you will tend to find the most examples in python, and it is a great Swiss army knife with many libraries and a large community to tackle all sorts of problems, ML or not.  Data processing, when done by code, is much more frequently done with python rather than javascript.
