vraman Posted March 4, 2021 Share Posted March 4, 2021 (edited) Hi all, I'm interested in Machine Learning Theory and CS Theory and have been admitted to both CS (NEU, USC, BU) and Stats (UM) PhD programs. Which program is generally "better" for ML theory work? I am sort of leaning towards Stats because I feel the coursework would be more relevant (compared to like systems classes in CS). However, right now, I plan to go to industry after a PhD and can't help but feel that a CS PhD would make me more marketable. In the case I do decide to go the academia route, would a Stats PhD lower my chances of getting a TT position for ML theory work? My reasoning here is that I see a lot of ML theory peeps fall into the CS department Edited March 4, 2021 by vraman clarification Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
