I have completed my undergrad degree and don't have any universities nearby where I can find research work. I want to write a research paper in Machine Learning and have been working in this field professionally. I read quite a few research papers as a part of job description but am unable to come up with a new idea for a research paper. How do I go about finding an idea? If I find something, generally its way too broad. Like I read about Hypergraph decompositions or HTMs and got really psyched about them. I couldn't get to a point though which would be a concentrated topic that could lead to a reproducible research.
How do I go about finding ideas for writing a paper considering I dont have anyone to work with me or guide me in the process?
