Phd candidates working on robotics and computer vision?
I think about continuing to PhD and I would like to hear from students about recommended labs, and what PhD life is like :)

    @uyouthe I don't build AI drones, I just try to tame them :)

    I do SLAM. Did it for my master's.
    Almost started PhD but decided to work a bit and do some research papers first.
    PhD life is ok if you don't have to work, if you do work, it's hard and depending on your subject, impossible to produce something great.

    @RustyCookie I am working (or rather the senior researchers in my group) on 2 papers based on my thesis work. I returned to uni for M.Sc after 4-5 years in the industry, so I am already a bit old...
    I am afraid if I get an industry job now, there will be no going back. And yes, I am looking for funded positions (in SLAM also).

    I worked in a computer vision lab in undergrad.

    It's a hot field right now. And you'll always have the option to take a lucrative job in industry if ever you don't like the PhD grind.

    Go for it

    @justamuslimguy Do you have labs you would recommend?

    Th@NickyBones top tier as you'd expect are MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, Caltech, Carnegie Mellon. etc.

    If you want an idea of the computer vision field, it's biggest conference (for USA) is CVPR. Go to the previous years conference pages, and trace the award winners and award winning papers back to their universities and you'll get a good idea of which ones constantly churn out quality research.

    @justamuslimguy I don't think I am brave enough to got for top tier US universities :S

    Btw, ETHZ has a pretty serious lab. Look em up, if you also consider Europe.

    @RustyCookie I applied for ETHZ like two days ago. But I am preparing myself for the bitter rejection

    @NickyBones Good luck! You can do it!
    Ps.
    ETHZ is maybe my fav European uni.
