    I came across this, from a Data Science account on Twitter. I was tempted to answer but it would take too many characters... I can't make much sense of it. Is this supposed to mean something. In my experience, there is no data scientist (or analyst for that matter) who does SQL only, or only Python. I know quite a few who don't do R and Python, but pretty much everyone uses SQL at one point or another. Perhaps I'm missing something... Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris

    I'm more a gifted amateur than a professional but what the heck, I'll toss my two-cents-worth in to get the conversation started.

    I know a few analysts who use Python nearly exclusively and others who prefer R also nearly exclusively.

    From what I see, much depends on where the data sits. SQL is great for collating subsets from various sources prior to playing with it. Python or R should be sufficient if working directly on the data from a single source.

    I assume data science pros will use whatever language or a combination of languages gets the job done most quickly. All subject to their personal preferences.

    At the basic level of how models are set up and how the training process works, they do. However the more interesting level is how the model parameters selected by the training process work together to make particular applications work. This is less well understood but there has been research into how trained and working deep learning models actually process the data. One approach I've found interesting is the use of renormalization theory from physics. This approach shows trained learning models analyzing the data on a sequence of scales.
