What is the best functional programming language for data science?

An exquisite answer to an “Ask HN” question:

If I were to make my home in one of those languages for some serious data science, I’d do it in Haskell. It’s still rough around the edges, but I feel there’s a better substrate for building more sophisticated things atop it. Clojure may be able to solve your particular problem more quickly, but my experience is that quick things written in Clojure don’t pay out over as long a period as quick things written in Haskell. Further, I think the comparative effort needed to build long-lasting libraries and tools in lower in Haskell.

If I were to just do a quick data science problem, I’d probably use R.

On the other hand, there’s a long conversation about Python vs R in data science.
