I apologize I posted one before finding this area and this is where I should have origonally posted.
I have become quite interested in three areas for an eventual masters degree, however with out a large amount of information it would be stupid for me to make any decision. Any help at all is greatly appreciated and I am asking for
- Projects that involve one of the following areas
- Career opportunities
- average pay of specific computer science fields
- colleges that excel in these fields (US specifically but global is okay)
- common programming languages used for each field
(Human-computer interaction) I would like to know projects and when it is used mostly on this (I know game interfaces is part of this but I am looking for areas outside of computers more towards appliances etc).
I am interested in applied AI for robotics more then design/theory of AI itself, if anyone can help in any such area for this other then programming languages you would be helping a huge amount.
Bioinformatics, Cognitive Science, Computation Neuroscience, Computation physics, all seem interesting and I know how they are used but colleges is an important part for this, as well I have heard that some of these are plateaued and I am interested if this is true, if the pay is better then average (average here for stating is 60-70k for a undergrad) and any independent projects.
If you know any forums that specify in these areas that would greatly help as well, and if you know any other big programming forums I could ask that would help a huge amount too. Any help is greatly appreciated.
