My Self-Created Artificial Intelligence Masters Degree

Posted on

Me in 15-seconds

I live in Brisbane, Australia.

I graduated in 2015 with a Dual Major in Food Science and Nutrition. It took me five years to do a three-year undergraduate degree. I thought I wanted to be a doctor. Probably because I was following what my friends were doing rather than creating my own path.

I’m a fitness nut. I also love food. Marrying my love for food and fitness with my studies was one of the best I ever did.The most valuable lesson I learned from five years as an undergraduate was if you’re truly interested in what you’re learning, studying is no longer a chore.
I learned how to learn.

If you had told me this piece of wisdom before starting university, I would’ve listened and understood but not put it into action. I was still under the impression studying would always be a painful task. Wisdom must be learned not taught.

Why study Artificial Intelligence?

This whole revolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) fascinates me. AI, coupled with other technologies has the power to make the world a better place. It also has the power to the world a worse place. I’m an advocate for the good side.Advancements in AI have been happening for decades. Computing power has only recently reached a stage where it is accessible enough to enable people like me to work on these technologies from my bedroom.Rather than stand by and watch this paradigm shift happen without fully understanding it, at the start of 2017, I decided to start learning about it.
