My Job as AI Professor involves: (1) teaching, (2) research & (3) technology transfer (with software demonstrators & patents) as an academic deployed at university & R&D institutions internationally in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence [AI], Intelligent MultiMedia [MultiModal Systems], Medical Informatics).
What I like most is the opportunity to work with people internationally in generating new knowledge and imparting knowledge, particularly in the Computer Science field of AI.
When I was at Primary & Secondary School I did not know what I would like to be, although I had an interest in Science & Horticulture & I knew I wanted to Travel internationally.
You can do my job easily, but it involves many years of very hard work, involving very many long hours, reading & writing, with an eagle eye for attention to detail. Most people would not be able to dedicate the number of hours required.
