Hi Narendra K. Thanks so much for your question. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

Having doubts about possible career paths is something that happens to many of us...even grownups :). It is important to know that what is exciting (and possibly a little scary) about machine learning is that it is a relatively new field. In my opinion, what makes that exciting is that you get to learn more and new things about machine learning. It is through that learning and research that you will gain an understanding of what it takes to get to do work in that field.

I can share that having a sustained career in machine learning does require a good understanding of how to write code...but it also involves having some "softer" skill sets, like being able to communicate and translate what the code needs to do so that the people who are intended to benefit from machine learning, actually do.

A few more details on steps to become a machine learner engineer. Try to connect either with people or programs that focus on this area. Use online research guides and read as much as you can about how machine learning is being used. You will find that the spaces where machine learning is used has almost no boundaries.

Best of luck to you!

This is not nearly as complicated as you might be assuming. Not that it's easy -- you'll first have to actually study and successfully complete a degree in AI, specifically including Machine Learning. If you do this, you'll likely be recruited at your school by companies needing that expertise. Alternatively, and probably in addition, look over the dozens or hundreds of job boards on the internet for positions needing that expertise. It will usually be explicitly mentioned in the job postings. Another thing that will likely happen is that when your resume is posted on any of those job boards, recruiters will be looking for candidates with these increasingly valuable and sought-after skills. Now what you should do is, however, not just passively wait for folks to contact you. You may be tempted to relax a bit after putting all that work into your degree. But do some research. Look for hot areas of ML and the various companies -- increasing as they are day by day -- and research those companies. Contact folks who work there if possible. You may find some interesting stuff!
