Hello,

Thanks for your reply. Firstly, I'd like to apologies for the many grammatical errors in my initial post. It's my own fault for writing so late at night!

To answer your question, pm133, much of the research in Computer Science currently focuses on (or at least involves) data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence or IoT. I have been spending my spare time learning ML. However, I fear this will take at least 12-18 months and even then, I may not be able to reach a sufficient level to complete a PhD in the subject.

18 months seems rather long. Are you secure on the underlying mathematical principles of ML? In other words, calculus, differential equations, statistics/probability and most importantly linear algebra?
