I'm a third-year CS major undergrad at a not so research-oriented campus. I was looking through a list of research professors (given some professors only do lectures), I found a professor leading computer vision researching, and this is something I seriously wanted to dive deep into. I do not have a research background except for reading interesting papers myself fetched from two-minute paper videos on youtube.
Reading through several Q&As from Quora and SO, some say go for it while some say I should approach people who work with them first. I've decided to approach the professor directly. While most say I should approach with humbleness, and after drafting an email and sending it to my friend in a research-oriented University, my friend says I should remove the humbleness (he would say: remove "If my lack of experience refrained me from being considered as a candidate, are there any specific papers, concepts, or directions that I can look into?") and go straight to the point stating what I can do for the professor instead. He said most professors are too busy and would not even read or reply to my email if I talk about lacking experience or writing a multi paragraph email. Which approach should I take?
