Definitely data engineering as mentioned above. All of this works on data, there will always be a need for new and updated pipelines and at a bare minimum data standardization to feed it shyt in a format it can understand. Read up on reinforcement learning / machine learning in general.Next week is my last week of work at my job. I plan to be unemployed through at least September.
I've got a few projects scoped out for my lil sabbatical, but I'm also mulling a strong pivot into whatever lane is carved out thanks to ChatGPT/large language models. IMO the writing's on the wall that it might be the biggest disruptor this side of touchscreen phones & personal computers, so I want to get in on the ground floor for some job security. The problem is, I don’t know where/how to get in where I fit in. @Secure Da Bag you seem like the person most in-tuned w/ the space so interested in what you have to say, but anyone with any opinion can weigh in.
My current working theory is based on Power BI... Microsoft made a bet on Business Intelligence going mainstream so they put a quarter billion into Power BI in 2020 and bundled it with their O365 product. Fast forward to 2022 and Power BI is a sought-after skill set in the job market... Now, with OpenAI, Microsoft are making a $10 billion bet, so I think that they are suggesting that the technology will permeate much of the needs of future employers. I like the scenario this reddit comment spun up as an example
My question is what are the skills required to meet employer needs when chatbots/AI become more mainstream in 1-2 years?
For example, let's say companies are all training chatbots using pre-existing customer-interaction data via messages/emails/phone calls. What skills would I likely need to assist in that process? Azure OpenAI seems like the tool that will be pushed to companies, so should I jump into Azure in general, should I get some ML Certs from Microsoft, should I take some ML courses on Udemy, should I do all of the above, or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?
Open to any advice!
Not exactly answering your question but man pivoting into law (without lawschool ) as a consultant or something would be excellent. Laws lag behind technology but there is going to be A LOT of liability with AI. I don't expect lawyers to learn about the nuances either.
