So as someone who started aiming for PhD and enrolled in masters , I'm really confused with how someone could move in the AI/ML research domain... I see outstanding papers published round the clock and it really makes me feel how anything I would do would even match the lowest standard worthy of publishing, not to mention the single biggest problem I don't have a problem in hand.
It increasingly looks like to me that I'll publish a review paper instead because I feel I'm decent enough in doing literature review (which really helped me with previous publications), but it feels like a shortcut, that I am not doing actual research and I am nowhere good to warrant a publishing.
PS I had some experience of publishing papers in my bachelor and know the general process followed in the academic writing, but these were often papers I really think were not worthy enough to be published. They had stemmed out of mostly the project I was involved in undergraduate.
