Was planning to pick computer science. Is this still a good option now that ai soon might disrupt whole industries and end potentially millions of jobs? I want a future proof degree and career.
Also, post the degree tier list. I needs dat. (Might be outdated though)
If computer science gets obsoleted, there won't really be anything left, so the degree you take is irrelevant. I guess certain areas within computer science might get obsoleted before others though.
CS is dead. imagine doing CS in 2023
My big tits GF does CS lol it's over
Let the women have it, make something new
It's got fucking cooties
I'd say physics is still pretty solid. Not any artistic degrees
how is physics a solid degree when minerva ai can do math and physics is 90% math?
You have been meme'd friend
Mathematics or Computer Science for AI?
>using a letter from the fucking Unabomber as your argument
Point two is incorrect. The only technological advance that was a mistake was the automobile, or—specifically—our eagerness to bend every facet of our society to its use.
This is a board for math and science, not city planners.
>If it isn't theoretical physics or pure mathematics, it isn't science!
Sure thing, bud.
Engineering is applied physics.
Sociology is statistics.
Art is applied mathematics.
sociology these days is made up bullshit what is inconsistent, often not falsifiable, and ultimately batshit crazy.
there is no future proof careeer. your best bet is making as much money as you can and buying compute power so you can run your own AIs and be self sustainable.
there is basically nothing AI will not replace.
Learn hella maths, python and machine learning. Only guarantee there is to be the monkey that tweaks the ai for the rich. That or some e-celeb shit, I doubt entertainment or sports is going anywhere. Try the NBA.
nothing is safe
I clicked your thread because my Pavlov-conditioned brain said the OP image had high market value.
So what you like doing. No one can predict the future.
Math or Physics >>>>> CompSci IMO
Don't do CS. You will be lost in schizo abstract land with extremely lazy guides. Do EE or similar fields. As long as you get the chance to absorb as much info on circuits that will change you. It doesn't matter how many programming languages you know. They are abstractions playing in a bigger box.
>It doesn't matter how many programming languages you know. They are abstractions playing in a bigger box.
And arent these being optimized by AIs themselves, to the point the engineers have no clue how theyre compiled?
>Best degree with AI in mind
Math Minor (or even major tbh)
Linear Algebra and discrete math are good specializations
marketing or journalism
Computer science is a pretty direct path. It is hard for me to recommend anything other than that.
fair warning, the following is my opinion and take it or leave it. Don't blame me if this fucks up your career.
I think like physics with an emphasis on statistical physics would give you a huge edge in terms of the modeling and mathematical tools you'll be comfortable with.
I think these skills already have been useful to an extent and I see them becoming more and more relevant.
Did business it. Hated it. Now in a rather big Corp in my country and I can talk with both business and it gays and understand most things.
Bachelor had programming but no ai, the masters does go into ai stuff. Not sure if I'll do it though
It seems like most of the interesting programmer jobs are fine with you having your degree in some other STEM field anyway, plus maybe a bootcamp or some coding projects.
Don't let the BOT brain rot get to you.
The particular major you pick won't really matter. Whatever your degree emphasizes is easily complemented by taking other classes as electives and doing research projects / internships.
>future proof degree
as long as you learn principles-first, whatever education you have is future proof.
There are ample parts of AI that have to do with rigor, which you'd get most practice with in a math degree.
There are ample parts where you have to understand how to make good approximations and techniques that rigor doesn't (immediately) afford you, which is what you get most in a physics degree.
There are ample parts having to do with nontrivial implementation and computational theory, which is what you would get most with a CS degree.
There are ample parts having to do with statistical learning, MCMC, etc.., which you would see most in a statistics degree.
It literally doesn't matter, both from the standpoint of an employer or a school looking to take you in for a PhD. You need research experience, to have taken some core ML classes, and to show an aptitude in learning what you're unfamiliar with outside the classroom.
And remember: most jobs for applied AI are data analysis, which is a career where you start with data janitorial work (un-degreed work) and get into the part that would use some AI methods. Aside from that, the tracks are research, computer vision, and domain-specific work (i.e. computational medicine or pathology, ML for denoising particle physics experiments, etc..)
oh lol this was responding to you as though you wanted to do AI/ML. Well, if you do, follow this advice, though my advice is generally true for most endeavors in STEM.
>Is this still a good option now that ai soon might disrupt whole industries and end potentially millions of jobs?
This is overblown. Software engineers already use a fuckton of code generation tools to patch systems together. The role of the SWE is fine, especially in light of the fact that software work is most compatible with ML+engineer co-work pipeline anyway.
>retards thinking ai will replace us
start changing to economics, society needs an economy to function and the elites will always use cheap human cattle to do the work and won't bother wasting resources to replace rajesh
