With its reliance on a community of physically dispersed individuals and flexibility of adoption, open-source data science is becoming an obvious choice. This is an even more attractive choice among cash-strapped governments, non-profits, and businesses. Not only Data science and but also Machine Learning have made their way from an obscure academic discipline to widespread corporate adoption over the past decade.
