Hello. I am looking for guidance. I have been working in software industry for about eight years now. I see that the trend is moving towards making a machine intelligent. I want to be part of this trend and move forward. My questions is: What skills do I need to become part of this era of artificial intelligence? I am listing down the skills that I think may be needed to get involved with artificial intelligence. They are as follows: Software Writing Mathematics Hardware Development - VLSI, Circuits Tools like MATLAB Let me know your views, advice, suggestions. What is more? I hope that artificial intelligence on planet Earth would still require software development and hardware development and use of mathematics. Am I missing something? Thank you.
