[D] My school has no deep learning faculty
I go to a small but fairly well-respected school and we have good students and good faculty, but none of the computer science profs specialize in deep learning. I have a project I’m working on right now with the intent to publish, and I’m starting on my masters thesis next semester (I’m a BS/MS student in my 4th year) and I’d really like to do a deep learning topic, maybe something related to this project I’m working on right now, but with no one to properly advise me I’m not sure what to do. I’m afraid to even publish this work I’ve been doing independently because I feel like I should run it by someone who isn’t an undergrad before I put it out into the world.
go to a different school lol
I mean I could but I would probably have to retake all the graduate courses I’ve taken, so I’m looking at a couple of years and a lot more debt before I have a Masters.
One option is that we have a very well respected medical/BME program that is doing a lot of stuff with deep learning, but I don’t know how much of it is actually moving the field of ML forward. Does anyone have any advice?
