[D] Why is this so painful
Been doing core ML research at a great uni for the past 5 years and I have nothing to show for it. No publications means no funding. Whenever I bring up the topic of publishing, my advisor says theres not enough results which is partially true. Is having low impact publication better than no publication? Can I publish other research as a solo author? I’ve literally spent the best years of my youth behind this..and I dont understand why it has to be so painful. I’m no genius.. Just hardworking but there are people with neurips, icml publications as first author whilst still in undergrad..how am I supposed to compete against raw natural talent?
