    I'm 29. Work in an AI lab.
    Honest answer is that in 4 years the job market will completely change.
    Not because of AI, but because increased interest rates means there is no more irresponsible free money floating a bubble.
    People are already having a hard time.

    As far as languages go, learn one, then a second, then a third. I literally do not care which, because they all blend together after the third.

      How do I learn AI in a competent manner? There are barely any technical resources online, especially ones that aren't general and go like "yeah to make a model we'll train it with this and then we'll do this and this and boom you got yourself your own model!". Any resources that actually go step by step and completely show the technical aspects? (coding, finding data, inputting parameters, iterations, making it learn etc).

        all that shit is just life experience bro.
        >coding
        You aren't going to be one of the 30 people in the entire industry who actually know what they're doing. Don't worry about it too much. Keep up with the state of the art. Try to implement some papers, but don't beat yourself up into becoming the next Ian Goodfellow.

        >finding data
        this is pretty much the crown israeliteel of any proprietary application. Several major iterations of LLMs you've seen so far have just been them realizing you can use an LLM to generate better synthetic data to train another LLM on.
        Remember when LLMs were shit at math, and then they suddenly started reasoning and using clarifying steps all on their own? Yeah.
        You need to be very resourceful and creative to mine for data beyond just scraping and using pandas.

        >hyperparameters
        meme shit.

            The only 2 useful anons here, thanks. When I become an AI overlord I'm gonna remember you two and make sure my bots don't kill you.

    With a career of 10 years I'll give you an honest advice, it all depends on what you want to do in the software industry.

    Web development? You'll learn
    PHP, Javascript, Ruby, Golang and maybe java, these are the languages you must learn and you'll always have a job as a software developer

    Game development?
    C++, C, Golang (servers and shits), maybe rust

    Blockchain?
    Rust, C, C++, Zig

    General programming (can be web, cli tools, scripting, etc...)
    Python, C++, Golang, C, Rust

    Scientific development? (simulations, desktop custom programs, graphics)
    C++, Python, Rust, C, R, D (yes there are three languages named after a single letter)

    It depends on where you want to go in life.

      >College is for fricking bottom of the barrel morons.
      who gives a frick about grades, it's all about sucking dicks and attending conferences/presentations, the curriculum is trivial even for the hardest majors, you failed uni if you don't have a teacher or two in the pocket, you never know who your teachers are friend with in the industry, I've had teachers with friends at nvidia or at various eletronic companies and that's how I got my first internship and then first job.
      that's also how a friend managed to get to do a phd in japan while not speaking a single word.
      there is much more to uni than grades and diploma, it will also prepar you to suck the right dicks at your job and nearly double your salary under 3 years (I did that as europoor, starting at 40k before taxes to 77k after 3 years, I'm sure mutts can do x2 even faster).

        by going above and beyond, i guess
        what would that mean in the current workforce context?
        i have no effing idea.

        but i can guarantee you that in a situation where you have a dozen people for one job
        if you dont stand out, you wont get hired.

        i think creating a portfolio would be a good start.
        a portfolio means youre passionate about your subject.
        and having some experience in various languages means youre flexible

        i, for instance, know C, a little bit C++, python, shell, a wee bit of js, played around with java, C#. but also html, css
        if i were to compete for a job id work on my high level languages and id learn a couple webdev frameworks.
        id create a portfolio where i demonstrate my competence in each of these languages.

        and then id be pretty confident i should find a job.
        especially because i could apply pretty much everywhere as a junior

    Loving the replies pushing morons into wasting their time on AI shit when the field is so full to the brim that even PhDs find it hard to get foot in the door.
    Web dev is shit too, embedded bros stay winning however.

    Don't worry about getting a job. Just get a PhD in Mathematics or Computer Science and then put on a maid outfit and make researches and release them to CC0.

    Don't worry about ever paying the school back. They can't repossess your brain.
