AI is one of the most sought-after technology today with tremendous career opportunities. However, since I am not aware of your major or academic track, my suggestion would be to follow the steps below to see if AI/ML is your way to the world:
1. Understand the AI landscape - AI has a growing number of intriguing sub-fields that requires specific skills and mindset.
2. Enroll in a good course or self-learn AI - there are a lot of AI resources available online to learn from.
3. Research popular AI career paths - learn their prerequisites.
4. Build a good resume and apply for open positions.
Best wishes with your research and please circle back with any more questions.
On the high level - if you like dealing with numbers, algorithms, logic, mathematics, you should be fine.
With this being said, life is full of choices, and you might have new passions or interests, and you can always switch. The most important thing is to give it a try, and willing to learn, and grow.
If you are technically sound the AI is the big future but AI is extremely broad that includes Machine learning, Natural language processing, Maths, Programming (python, C/C++/ Java). Hence if you are good at programming and maths then AI is certainly right for you. If you are not keen on learning these technologies then still there's a way to stay associated with AI which I have answered in your another question posted today.
Hope that helps.
That is great question indeed.
In order to answer that you need to learn a little bit about yourself and skills and predisposition you have. Please take a look at:
SELF ASSESSMENT – https://www.whatcareerisrightforme.com/

Additionally I would suggest to read excellent book: FIND YOUR WHY by Simon Senek which will give you guidelines around how to find your purpose in life which will be your internal driving force making you get up in the morning and be passionate about what are you doing. That is very important to have your purpose because only then you feel fulfilment which enable you to overcome all the challenges and thrive in fast paced environment.
Secondlly I would suggest to look into IKIGAI concept, as that is fantastic roadmap which will navigate your thoughts to get the answer on what is really important to you in life.
Ikigai (pronounced ee-key-guy) is a wonderful Japanese concept that essentially means “a reason for being.” It's made from two Japanese words: iki, meaning “life” and kai, meaning “effect, result, worth or benefit.” Combined: “a reason for living.”
Ikigai is the union point of four fundamental components of life: passion, vocation, profession and mission. In other words, where; what you love meets what you are good at, meets what you can be valued and paid for meets that which the world needs. Ikigai is only complete if the goal implies a service to the community. We feel more satisfied giving gifts than receiving. The next step, once you’ve identified these components, would be to start following your compass. Start working on your questions, and see how your answers fit in the Ikigai components.
Hope that gave you another perspective to look at your search to discover your career path!
Keeping fingers crossed!
