In my perspective R is better than MATLAB because:

  • R provides better data-structures than MATLAB. MATLAB only provides a basic array and hence it becomes difficult to work with numerical values in MATLAB.
  • R is the lingua franca for data science i.e. R provides numerous packages for the purpose of machine learning, data science, time series analysis and predictive modeling.
  • R provides both object oriented and functional programming paradigms.

R is mainly used for statistical analysis or data processing. R provides many packages which can do anything and everything with the data. Its faster compared to MATLAB but has complex syntax and coding is a little complicated.

Hello,

Both are a good programming language you can learn any one but R-programming is best for machine learning because R is based on object-oriented programming it has any inbuild pre-define class, library and package are available. by using this class can any easily implement the program. One more thing R-programming is an extension of c++.

If you are interested to learn machine learning then I will suggest you can join Machine Learning With Live Project. because they give the opportunity to work on the live project. the industry likes to hire those students they have some working experience.
