I am just starting to learn about machine learning, and I have taken some intro classes in MATLAB and Python. I want to know about fulfilling careers and fields programmers can pursue to help me determine my career direction. Thank you for your time!

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, and yes you are right, I do want to learn about sectors that make use of Machine Learning. I asked for companies, though, because ML is used in so many sectors (public health like you said, but mostly marketing and research from what I have seen) that I wanted to see more of examples of ML being used for a cause. $\endgroup$ – user312166 Aug 7 '18 at 18:40

If you want to join companies for a good cause then my opinion would be look for startups. Startups have broader definition of work and more freedom with data. You can search through their goals and find what you need.
