Why entrepreneurship is best way to go forward for a CS graduate

A lot of my friends are in computer science and there are a lot of them who are not but want to learn programming and get into software development so that they can hack the plethora of high paying white collar jobs out there. The government and and the industry seems to be happy about it and are fueling this environment with more venture fund and government funds. Sure, the number of different applications in which software can easily and dramatically increase productivity is practically unlimited, so each additional worker in the tech industry always has important problems to solve, and the other software engineers are occupied with their own problems. So everything should work out great in future, right? More jobs and more demand? Apparently not so. Let's take better look. Most of the pass-outs are being placed in startups. This whole startup eco-system is being fueled on bets by venture firms. If the market does not scale to profits, the venture funds would cut the funding.

Some more Ideas.

"An idea a day, makes a man healthy, wealthy and happy :-P " Idea #1 Creating a messenger chatbot which would take the subtitle files of a movie/series. And then based on the characters of the series, it would ask which character would you like the messenger bot to train on. It would train on that data (subtitle files) using machine learning and then you can chat with your favourite character. Tech Stack: Messenger Chatbot (Python, flask) , Web Interface - Flask , api.ai api's or tensorflow+scikit-learn+pandas Idea #2 Watch videos with your friends online. You need to enter a video url of youtube and wait it to buffer on all the workstations connected. A small popup window would appear of your friend, which would show up the video of him. Thus you and your friends could react to same video, capture each other's emotions, and release that reaction on youtube for the world to watch. Tech Stack : Rails 5 (ActionCable , Redis) , Chrome Extension (maybe?) Idea

Instantaneous Systems in Future (Applications of AI, ML and DA)

A lot has been already talked about AI, Machine Learning and Data at a superficial level. There is very little clarity among people that how it would affect our day to day lives. Most people I know have the impression of AI as a Robot that has near human intelligence and would take over the planet earth. This particular use case (although highly exciting) is a rare possibility in future.  In this article I would list the possible use cases of AI, Machine Learning and Data Analysis. Use Case 1: Cooking food In the current scenario, we think of what we would like to eat, go to grocery store, pick the right recipe ingredients and then go home and cook the food. This is way too tiring. Future Case Scenario:- There is an app which knows and understands your tastes very well. You need to select your mood, and based on the data it has from millions of consumers, it would suggest which food you would like to eat, along with an estimated price for the ingredients. You tap the food, the s
