From elect eng to physics

  1. Jan 2, 2015 #1
    hi there! in case i'm writting this in the wrong place, sorry!
    i reached the 7th semester of electronic engineering and i left cause i got bored. this was 10 years ago. in this time i went to germany and austria as an intern, working in EEG models, signal processing, etc. i'm 35 now
    thing is, i always had interest in providing consciousness to machines (loved those terminator movies), so i want to keep studying this AI branch, but not from the PoV of electronics, but rather from a theoretical conception that uses concepts of physics, like eg. Roger Penrose does.
    is there a connection? should i quit EE and start physics all over? should i end EE (disgusted) and start a masters or phD in physics? is this even possible? i have good language skills in english, german and french.
    thanks for ur help

    Welcome to PF!

    What about CompSci AI?

    ^ This.

    CompSci AI seems like a very good match for what you specified. It's also a very good field to go into currently.
