I am soon finishing my master's program in theoretical physics. Half of the courses I took were in pure mathematics (from algebraic topology to category theory), and my thesis is between physics and mathematics (it is about some categorical aspects of string theory).
I realized I do not want to do a career in academia, and actually I am very interested in working in Artificial intelligence, in a company, and in teams. I had plenty of experience with Python, but not with Artificial intelligence itself. I am unsure how to proceed towards this end: should I do a PhD mixing physics and AI for example and then try to enter the corporate world, or go directly to the market and get educated on the job? Or something else?
