#machinelearning #phd #howto This video is advice for new PhD students in the field of Machine Learning in 2021 and after. The field has shifted dramatically in the last few years and navigating grad school can be very hard, especially when you're as clueless as I was when I started. The video is a personal recount of my mistakes and what I've learned from them. If you already have several published papers and know what to do, this video is not for you. However, if you are not even sure where to start, how to select a topic, or what goes in a paper, you might benefit from this video, because that's exactly how I felt. Main Takeaways: - Select niche topics rather than hype topics - Write papers that can't be rejected - Don't be discouraged by bad reviews - Take reviewing & teaching seriously - Keep up your focus - Conferences are for networking - Internships are great opportunities - Team up with complementary skills - Don't work too hard OUTLINE: 0:00 - Intro & Overview 1:25 - Thesis Topic Selection 4:25 - How To Publish Papers 5:35 - Dealing With Reviewers 6:30 - How To Be A Reviewer 7:40 - Take Teaching Seriously 8:30 - Maintain Focus 10:20 - Navigating Conferences 12:40 - Internships 13:40 - Collaborations 14:55 - Don't Forget To Enjoy Transcript: https://www.notion.so/Yannic-Kilcher-s-PhD-Survival-Guide-Transcript-c507ab8e963e496fbb185cdfdb8d65ae Credits to Lanz for editing Links: TabNine Code Completion (Referral): http://bit.ly/tabnine-yannick YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/yannickilcher Twitter: https://twitter.com/ykilcher Discord: https://discord.gg/4H8xxDF BitChute: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/yannic-kilcher Minds: https://www.minds.com/ykilcher Parler: https://parler.com/profile/YannicKilcher LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/yannic-kilcher-488534136/ BiliBili: https://space.bilibili.com/1824646584 If you want to support me, the best thing to do is to share out the content :) If you want to support me financially (completely optional and voluntary, but a lot of people have asked for this): SubscribeStar: https://www.subscribestar.com/yannickilcher Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/yannickilcher Bitcoin (BTC): bc1q49lsw3q325tr58ygf8sudx2dqfguclvngvy2cq Ethereum (ETH): 0x7ad3513E3B8f66799f507Aa7874b1B0eBC7F85e2 Litecoin (LTC): LQW2TRyKYetVC8WjFkhpPhtpbDM4Vw7r9m Monero (XMR): 4ACL8AGrEo5hAir8A9CeVrW8pEauWvnp1WnSDZxW7tziCDLhZAGsgzhRQABDnFy8yuM9fWJDviJPHKRjV4FWt19CJZN9D4n
