We read a lot of papers. This is my standarized procedure for reading a paper such that the insight from it can be kept and spread.
If you plan to pursue PhD after your master, it might be a good idea to experience research in my lab. If you plan to industry career, it might not.
If you are not sure, getting a SW job is okay. If you study AI by yourself for one or two years, you might consider applying for PhD program.
If you have a technical problem. Solve it on your own while producing shareable outcome. If you have a research idea, your advisor can help you evaluate whether it is intractable, already done, or trivial.
In HDILab, we learn by teaching. Do not study or work but create a sharable output. Be true to yourself.
