A lot has changed since I earned my degree in Computer Science, but the fundamentals like math and set theory have remained relatively constant. Ironically, I was student who loathed math for most of my academic career or at least I thought I did. I enjoyed Discrete Mathematics and Set Theory.

In truth, Computer Science majors have to learn a different kind of math compared to most other majors (except of course math majors). These branches of math are critical for those looking to go into research in fields like computer science, AI, or even pure mathematical research.

Show Notes

Recently, this post of the Best Jobs in the US came across my news feed.Note that “Data Scientist” has been knocked out of first place by “Machine Learning Engineer.” This title didn’t even exist a few years ago.So then, how do we prepare kids for the future of work when the jobs don’t exist yet. Simple: you prepare them with the fundamentals.As I recorded this show, I was joined by a distinguished guest rather by surprise.
