It’s the facts and trends that Google gives us.
1. Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
AI and ML have become popular in recent years and will continue to do so in the future because these are the future. With numerous applications like Self Driving Cars, Predicting Future, Robotics, it will be the most popular application.
Python has many great libraries which help us achieve our goal like :
- Pandas and NumPy for Data Analysis
- Keras, TensorFlow, Scikit-learn for Machine Learning
- OpenCV for Computer Vision
- NLTK for Natural Language Processing
2. Web Development
We can use Python even for developing Fully Functional Websites. Django and Flask are the most popular frameworks that are currently used. Database Management, Content Management, are easily managed by the standard libraries included in these frameworks.
You won’t believe, popular websites like Instagram, Pinterest, Spotify, and many more have been built on Django. Looks fascinating! Isn’t it? Yes, all of these tasks can be achieves using these frameworks.

4. Network Automation
Yes! you read it right. Python is also used in Network Automation and many companies prefer Python over other languages in automating various tasks.
Libraries like Netmiko, Paramiko helps with the interaction between various devices and is supported by various vendors.
5. Web Scraping
