The programming language, which is popular for machine learning, could soon break into the top three.

Tiobe has updated its monthly programming language popularity chart, and Python is on the rise. The language has been increasing in popularity because of its usefulness for machine learning and big data analytics. Two other indexes — IEEE and PyPL — list Python as the number one programming language. Python is currently fourth on the Tiobe list, but it is close to overtaking C++ for third.
