Python is again the Top Programming Language of the Year

TIOBE is one of the leading trackers of language popularity.

Python has won the prestigious TIOBE Programming Language of the Year award for the second time in a row.

Python opened at the third position of the TIOBE index at the start of 2021 but left both C and Java behind to take the top position later. Currently, Python is more than 1 percent ahead of the rest.

According to TIOBE Python has the capability to become the ‘de facto’ standard programming language.

The TIOBE award is given to the programming language which has gained the highest increase in ratings in a year. Python surpassed the popularity of C last month.

The TIOBE Programming Community index indicates the popularity of programming languages. 

The index is updated every month. Popular search engines like Google, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Bing, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings.

A beginner’s guide to Spatio-Temporal graph neural networks

Spatio-temporal graphs are made of static structures and time-varying features, and such information in a graph requires a neural network that can deal with time-varying features of the graph. Neural networks which are developed to deal with time-varying features of the graph can be considered as Spatio-temporal graph neural networks.
