Hey Folks!
Looks like most of the jobs in the field require a PhD or lots of work experience.

I am a software engineer and I have been wanting to work in the field of Deep learning- like Self Driving technology but not limited to it. I am super passionate about it and have been training myself in the field.

Background:
Software developer with Masters related to ML
Have enrolled in Udacity SD car course
Also reading Deep learning research papers.
Thanks!

      Thanks! Will do...but it seems like a very niche community. I am trying to network into it? Not sure how

      Honestly if you contact Tesla, waymo, Uber atg recruiters on LinkedIn with something similar to this as an email on sure they will give you a chance.

      I'm sure Pinterest, Houzz, or anyone doing object recognition would also be interested.

      Look for the company and division you want then find the recruiters on LinkedIn. I'm sure receiving an inmail from a qualified candidate to them is more than welcome.

    Work at a start up that will give you a chance to prove yourself. I just have an undergrad degree with an interest in robotics, but work on ML stuff for self driving, now, by getting my foot in the door with a smaller company.

      I have been following geohot and Comma.ai for a while, I love the approach they are taking with crowdsourcing and using a phone to collect data and eventually control car...super fascinating stuff
