I don't think so specially in AI/ML field.

Python can handle primitive types much better than ruby/perl can at the 
moment. And has much less of an overhead, compared to ruby where almost 
everything is a FixNum etc (perl is even worse on types), where Python 
can see the actual integer or float and calculations can run at close to 
C++ speeds.
