[D] In your experience, how necessary is a PhD if you want to specialize in Deep Learning?
As an undergrad student who graduates next year, I was looking for a masters to apply to, but I realized that there are no master programs specialized in deep learning, which is the topic I love and have studied more from machine learning.
Also, if you look through the internships and job opportunities for ML in the big tech companies, almost all of them ask for a PhD as a minimum requisite.
So, in your experience, how necessary is a PhD if you want to work in the Deep Learning field? What are the pros and cons?
