Are physicists taking over Silicon Valley?

If you are like me, you want to know how to succeed in the future. What things can I learn how to do now that will pay off over time?

If this question interests you, consider this from Wired

… this is a particularly ripe moment for physicists in computer tech, thanks to the rise of machine learning, where machines learn tasks by analyzing vast amounts of data. This new wave of data science and AI is something that suits physicists right down to their socks.

This is so because physicists are trained to deal with enormous amounts of data, as well as complex math. That might now be your bag, but there is one more aspect that may suit you more.

Physicists are trained to deal with uncertainty. And that is a key area to understand deep learning.
