This is the situation. I have a financed car two years into the finance. The car is worth more than the remaining balance by about $6,000. I would like to trade it for a cheaper car and get the…
Recently someone asked me who is an AI Engineer and what to do to become one.
I think the job description cannot be defined. It is just so vast field that, you have to narrow down the scope to something like DL / ML Engineer or CV Engineer, etc.
But then I thought about myself. Can I call myself an AI engineer? If you have worked on AI-related technology and have engineered a project driven by ML or AI then you start considering yourself as a candidate.
I think there are two types of thinking of you can call mindsets.
So a researcher’s vs an engineer’s point of view over the same object differs significantly.
Take a simple example of a heart rate monitor or a traditional stethoscope. Engineering approach would be to optimize it mechanically, to maximize the sound captured.
A disruption in the traditional way could be brought by research by using captured images with a particular spectrum to analyze the frequency of intensity variation.
You still require an innovative engineering approach to design this new device and optimize it.
Research and Engineering always go hand in hand in all disciplines of science.
So coming back to AI engineer, it’s almost the same concept. One possible addition is that AI engineering or research is not limited to the specific discipline of science.
Anyone from any discipline of science can become an AI engineer.
Here comes my favorite guy.
This guy talks with researchers and combines the engineering knowledge and connects research to production.
This guy may also work as a prototype engineer.
When I started the Study Groups with MLTokyo, I got a wide range of participants for the machine learning study group. There were electronic engineers, mechanical, designers, finance guys, real estate people.
We always asked the first question :
And we got many types of responses
But there were some people who could connect and find a reason to learn AI.
This mechanical engineer guy was working in a pipe company. They installed water pipes at different locations.
In the case of pipe failure, the repairmen had these tasks:
The reason why this guy wanted to study AI especially Computer Vision was to make the life of repairmen easy.
An app with computer vision feature and ability to quickly predict the possible reason and at the same time suggest solutions based on data.
That would break the traditional industrial way of repairing pipes.
Even if you don’t have much knowledge of AI, you can still learn it because it’s just investing your time and efforts.
Brainstorming to use AI in your field of engineering can guide you in this enormous sea of competitive AI world.
Becoming a backend developer is about as close to being a wizard as it gets in software development. You’ll learn how to see the invisible and bring order to a world that most people barely know…
