Hello.
I have a bachelor degree in physics and I'm an embedded programmer now.
I would like to engage in scientific activities, but I can't choose the area: Laser Physics or Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition...).
I heard opinion that artificial intelligence - the area is quite boring, mainly related to the meticulous study of algorithms or "primitive selection of parameters for algorithms and preparation of input data for them."
By the way, I do not like studying mathematics in large quantities.

Then I believe you will enjoy neither Laser Physics or Artificial Intelligence.

The fact that you have listed two fields with so little in common suggests that you like the "idea" of these fields but you really know nothing about them. Do you research than follow what interests you.

Sorry, but those two statements are just contradictory.

You can't "engage in" any form of "scientific activity", except for reading pop-sci books, without "studying math in large quantities".

unless you are doing biology or chemistry (at least some chemistry).

Sounds like you aren't really up-to-date with current biology.

not all biology involves math so you can certainly do some biology without extensive math. I thought it was rather clear what I meant.
